A cracked sign at dock-level, where loading boats would be tied below the taconite conveyors. All across the surface of the concrete dock were taconite pellets, like slippery little marbles. One wrong step could put a worker in the water, which is a bad, bad place to be.
The underside of the dock seemed almost like a cathedral to industry with vaulted ceilings.
My favorite shot of the 17-story Art Deco office tower attached to the train station.
A board to track which miners are underground. Low tech, but very effective.
Bricks from the demolished buildings.
A typical stretch of the assembly line.
Looking into the mouth of the hopper which mine carts dumped into at the top of the Concentrator.
Looking up the hill from the rooftop of the Temple Opera Block. The downtown casino (left) looks far closer to its original use as a Sears Roebuck department store than it does today. Behind it is the blighted Carter Hotel, one of many abandoned buildings near the former Orpheum.
