A screened water wheel, presumably for rotating the dredge once it lowered its “foot” to pivot in place.
The dredge is divided into four levels. The top level has controls for the tailings boom and, when it was there, the bucket excavator.
A reminder to the manlift riders to get off the belt before they hit their heads on the ceiling. This is the top level of the headhouse, where dust collectors would extract most of the grain bits from the air to reduce risk of explosion.
An interesting crane in the back of the machine shop. It seems very light duty, so I am not certain what it was used for.
Originally, this part of the dock was reserved for the weather station.
An old stoker in a power plant that was abandoned long before the mill next to it, by all indications. Sugar mills burned dry beet pulp pellets for fuel.
A wide view of the steam pump room, complete with pistons (taken apart for their brass), flywheels (covered in graffiti and rust) and pressure gauges (smashed apart for fun). I guess what I’m trying to say is, I was not disappointed.
Looking up the rock house.
Looking at the tallest part of the plant from a skeletal loading dock. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.
