Map Desk The back of the pilot house had a desk full of navigational notes and maps. Similar Images ...based on the tags: paperwork, phones, portholes, switches... The well-worn chair in one larry’s operator cab, next to an overgrown coke battery. Peering out of the porthole of the light tower, I saw the shadow of the station on the lake. In the middle of the foundry, an office is untouched by scrappers, legal and not. Inside, warnings and catalogs for machines that are gone, obsolete, and melted down.

Rubber dock boots still sits under the desk in the dock office, near keys to rusted locks and files of fired employees. A half acre of switchboards and switches, circuit breakers and generators. Modern. An unmarred chart, printed with the facility name and ready to be sent out to command.
