The generator hall of the last power station, as seen from the gantryway.
Steel mine hoists, near the place they worked, wait for scrap prices to justify their final removal from Osceola, Michigan.
Like many mill-style buildings of the time, the Twohy’s loading doors (in this case, the delivery wagon doors) opened to an elevator shaft. This design cut down on loading time, as long as the elevator was operational. Of course, if it was otherwise occupied, there could be no traffic through the exterior doors!
A hydraulic ‘bridge’ couple lower onto the tracks to bring mine cars into the shaft house, presumably for repair. I haven’t found this system anywhere else, but it makes a lot of sense.
A burned and rusted control panel in the corner of the new hoist room.
A ruined platform on the railyard platform side of the warehouse.
A corner of the addition is lined with glass cabinets, formerly filled with beds.
Many outdoor areas of the plant have become unofficial city dumps. The skeleton doesn’t care.
