A 24-hour clock that reeks of the 1970s. A ladder stenciled “LTV”–the failed steel company that built this dock. There is more, if you look closer.
I had to search the shelves a while to find this old logbook. The open page lists changes in stock numbers for Cutler Hammer Coils, and one row says that a new coil was installed on the black larry. The larry is the machine that loads coke ovens.
I wonder if these handcarts will become decoration for the hotel being building next to the silos.
Rubber dock boots still sits under the desk in the dock office, near keys to rusted locks and files of fired employees.
Peering out of the porthole of the light tower, I saw the shadow of the station on the lake.
In the corner of the foundry, this lunchroom was literally collapsing under one small leak in the roof. Tile by tile the water ate away the ceiling. Note the clock.
Records of dead machines rot on the accounting office floor.
