The laundry building, where many of the tunnels came to an end. It looks very East Coast industrial to me.
The Tilston School,built in the late 1960s. In front of it is a memorial and model to the first schoolhouse. This building, however, has been turned into a kind of town dump. The classrooms are filled with mattresses and discarded tires and trash.
Even with a hundred people parked in front of the lakeside relic, it was invisible.
Approaching the power station and its giant stack. The stack replaced four shorter stacks in the 1960s, helping with pollution in the downtown corridor.
Another perfect Indianan sunset alights like a bird on the tops of the vent houses and tree-packed smokestacks.
The metallic arms of the missile erector, which would stand rockets over the blast pit in the launch position. Medium Format film–cheap but excellent Fomapan 100 in a Pentax 67.
A gymnasium, if I recall. The last building before the road dead-ends.
This is what the mine shops look like from the road between Gaastra, MI and Rogers Location (formerly Bates, MI). The community was renamed for the mine, probably under the heavy influence of M.A. Hanna.
