Scanned after being recovered from the bottom of an old wooden box for a few years. Circa 2005.
From the bottom of the skyway I looked back, my eyes tracing the vines from the marsh up the smokestacks to the perfect Midwestern sky.
The bottom area of the smokestacks house storage spaces. The windows of these rooms that were never completed line up perfect.
A passing cloud almost looks like a puff of smoke from the trimmed smokestack of Consolidated D. In the lower corner you can see a little Stonehenge that someone with a sense of humor and heavy equipment built.
Looking toward the old power house, right below one of its arteries.
Quincy Smelter, 2014.
Little has changed inside the mill, but since it was built in 1916, many tanks and ancillary buildings have popped up around it.
The coke plant looked more natural through a grimy window.
A quick shot to show the mineshaft in context with the smelter. Did I mention the smelter’s stack is unreasonably gigantic?
