A side door for the shop area with ivy crawling toward it.
Looking at ADM-Delmar #4, #1 and Kurth from the Meal Storage Elevator at sunset on one of the warmer days of December. Note the graffiti “United Crushers” that gave the big elevator its common name among locals. Also, Harris Machinery is sitting in the lower-left corner, awaiting word of its next use.
My favorite time to be in the brewery was sunrise. That’s the kind of light that made the brewhouse glow.
Much of the circa-1950s buildings remain with few alterations, such as these long boring sheet metal ruststicks.
From the 1909 addition, it’s obvious how much water it takes to carry a single wall to, into and through the cracks between the floor tiles: exactly one roof’s worth.
A screened water wheel, presumably for rotating the dredge once it lowered its “foot” to pivot in place.
The corner of Clyde on Michigan Street looked like it had been sealed a long time.
The doorframes become more askew every year as the buildings slip downward into the gulch at different rates. This seems to be the part of the mine ruins where transients leave their marks. The graffiti dated back to the 1970s, at least.
The end of the new elevator. Line of bird droppings follow the fire sprinkler pipes and wires in the room.
