The small door leads to the offices, the large door leads to the shop. My back at this time is to the corrugated steel wall. At the time I wondered why there was just one steel wall, not knowing that 40 years before there was another spot for an engine here.

A squat building with a rail scale. Taken between rain showers in late summer, when I seemed to be the only one at White Pine.
My first picture at Nopeming, sometime around 2004. The same year that the county stopped mowing the lawn.
