It would be a shame if this building is not preserved. Word is (as of 2015) that construction may start on this section soon.
The top floor of the condemned Russell Miller mill “B”, which would have housed sets of powerful electric motors to power the plant’s dust collectors and grain purifiers.
Cobble streets wrap around the inside of the fort.
The concrete annex elevator had interesting graffiti. Much of it from the 1980s and 1990s.
The city constructed a wall in the early 2000s to discourage visitors. Note the staircase is cut off, too.
Island Station, in the middle of the power house, in the middle of a thunder storm. Flapping pipe covers and sheets of ran penetrating one massive arched window and blasting through the other, as winds power through the building from the Mississippi. The sound of the thunder made every length of steel squeak under the pressure.
Sunbeams under the sintering belt. Support cradles for the wires crossing the factory are falling down.
Looking down into the lunch building of an Atlas D, near the motors for the retractable roof. In this design, the roof separates to allow the missile to be erected into launch position.
The taller of the two smokestacks on site. Note the crack around its crown.
