Cheratte lives on in the shadow of its abandoned coal mine, although most of the shops are abandoned and many of the city’s landmarks have fallen into disrepair. Like other Belgian mining towns, those who have stayed in the town have kept up their apartments, so much of the company-building duplexes and homes are in great condition.
It is unclear whether this area was for coal dumping or ore dumping, though the huge dents in the steel plating suggests the latter.
The ruins of the the Hubert Mine over the ruins of Nevadaville. Its ore was taken through the town to a mill below it.
There isn’t an unbroken window in the entire historic complex as of 2013.
A humble prairie elevator at Fannystelle, Manitoba. What a name!
One of the last times I saw the skyway standing. ADM’s Meal Elevator is in the distance.
Behind the small stage is a hallway signed by practically every act that walked through its doors. There’s also a pair of palms. Since all the heat in the building collects in this area, it did seem more tropical.
A view of the Harris offices, complete with great block glass.
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
