A squat in the basement of the Temple Opera Block. When the residents were evicted by Duluth Police in 2013, they said their favorite part of living there was that the steam pipes kept it warm all winter long for free.
The shaft house, where hydraulic steel doors allowed or denied entry into the mine shaft. Overhead is a light and alarm. If it sounds, the mine is being evacuated, and you best not go in and best stay the hell out of the way. Locals dump tires here, now.
Don’t let Mitchell Engine House run out of steam…
Beside the shaft building are two fans on skids, indicating they were used underground.
On the second floor of the former carpentry shop, originally the delivery wagon shed.
Leather shoes in a supply closet. They seem to me men’s shoes.
An 80s-era company crate, as found in a forgotten store room.
Someone’s abandoned to-do list.
One of the few artifacts left in the chapel section is this old floor buffing machine.
