Looking across the catwalk behind the ore chutes, when they were up, and at the top of the ore chutes during loading.
This is a typical view of the factory; most of it was long hallways flanked by piles of equipment and access points to maintain them.
Open wide! Here comes the sugar beets!
A detailed look at the side of one of the thousands of transformer boxes in the war city.
A squat building with a rail scale. Taken between rain showers in late summer, when I seemed to be the only one at White Pine.
A staircase threads between the top floor and the sluices, which are in the middle of the dredge-mill.
This floor of the workhouse had corkscrew conveyors–big augers–in the floor to move material around. Most of the walls that were metal were missing, leaving the concrete structure and open doors.
The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus. The smaller elevator replaced an earlier smaller warehouse in 1926. Taken shortly after dawn. This one picture made the drive worth it, for me. Medium Format.
Looking down a manlift on the ore dock side of the elevator. It’s a belt-less belt-o-vator!
