In the mountainside are a number of air shafts, indicating where the tunnels traced under the rocky surface.
One of the many blast doors. Note the plunger to seal off the airflow in the event of an attack or accidental explosion.
One of two control towers that reached over the lake. The control panel here was used to move the conveyors over the ship’s hold doors, adjust flow of the taconite, and so on.
A tunnel that brought heat from the power plant to the Hart House. Since that building was demolished, this only served as a fallout shelter. To my knowledge, this was never used to move bodies to the incinerator. That was probably done with a vehicle and the lower entrance to the power station, which did dispose of TB victims for some time.
A sign of where man met machine.
I love the ghost sign across these two elevators, originally built as Superior Elevator. It’s looking pretty rough.
The cladding on the 1926 elevator is beginning to submit to the high velocity prairie winds.
Shadows of the skylights form a backdrop for rust-welded machines.
A porcelain basin in the locker room is detached, but shows excellent patina. I hope when the machine shop is repurposed that this can be saved.
