A long exposure of the launch pad and its dedicated guard shack. In the middle of the base is a tall antenna which was part of the MARS program during the Gulf War. The MARS program helped connect calls between deployed soldiers and their families.
A sign facing the city on an exterior wall–a sort of motivational poster.
If there was a problem with the conveyor belt, the grain would go out these chutes.
A vent sitting at the base of one of the crumbling smokestacks.
Looking out of the “back door”, where equipment could be lifted into the factory with a crane. The bottom of the coal conveyor can be seen outside.
Officers got houses and the honor of living near other officers. They call it Officer’s Row.
The building behind Daisy was demolished, leaving these tanks and a pointless conveyorway. Now it’s bricked (see over door near right corner of mill) and the tanks are exposed to the elements. There are a few holes in the area that have a healthy drop, so you should avoid the area.
Wind-battered catwalk lights between the shaft house and headframe/rockhouse building.
A 5-minute exposure of the tunnel and stars, and even some of Duluth’s city lights bouncing off the clouds. A single off-camera flash in the tunnel gives the effect of an oncoming train.
Aluminum spools replaced their wooden counterparts, later in the factory’s history.
