Underfoot Underdock The underside of the ore dock in winter. Snow drifts across the dock from the frozen lake. Similar Images ...based on the tags: long-exposures, pillars, shadows, snow... Shortly after the former delivery wagon shed was arsoned in 2005. A turning point in the story of Hamms’ abandonment. A sizable crane on the corner of the engine house still swings out. After climbing the elevator shaft to the illusive second level, a new pallet of colors were revealed. Taken from the rooftop looking toward downtown, a hometown, a river town. The sun lowered behind the dead flour mill, bending its image upon itself. An experimental shaft dug in the 1950s and its Hoist House. The steam-powered hoist that pulled ore and dropped men from the mine. Note the hydraulic-operated brake on top with its massive brake pad. Now scrapped. Stained windows and sheet metal catch the sunset from across the Ohio River. I don’t think we’re anywhere near maximum pressure anymore.
