Kurth Malting- Downbound in Mono Workers would undoubtedly prefer to use the belt manlift on the right. Similar Images ...based on the tags: belt-elevators, black&white, pipes, staircases... Generations of Two Harbors teens smoked their first weed in this abandoned building, in my estimation. Comment if I’m right! A hydraulic ‘bridge’ couple lower onto the tracks to bring mine cars into the shaft house, presumably for repair. I haven’t found this system anywhere else, but it makes a lot of sense. Looking into the tunnel system from below the Women’s Ward. The tunnels were used mostly by staff to move food and laundry. When it was convenient, the sugar company would pull equipment, even pipes, from one mill for another. At night the city lights blast through the broken windows, casting crazy colors through the off-white interior of the mill. The long control room overlooks giant caps where equipment was removed long ago. The barracks are being reclaimed by nature. A side view of the floatation level. I found it interesting that there were little ladders and staircases in the mill to help workers get around–this place was not as shoddy as other mills I’ve seen. Part of the system below Dock 2.
