A washout two thirds of the way down the tram gave me a place to relax in the thin air.
Looking at ADM-Delmar #4, #1 and Kurth from the Meal Storage Elevator at sunset on one of the warmer days of December. Note the graffiti “United Crushers” that gave the big elevator its common name among locals. Also, Harris Machinery is sitting in the lower-left corner, awaiting word of its next use.
The Eureka Mill, historically known as Sunnyside Mill, is now the gateway to Animas Forks.
Looking from the brewhouse at the death of its sister building, across Minnehaha.
One of the covered rail loading docks. All of them were overgrown and rust-clad.
The world’s biggest paper machine was installed here about a century before this photo was taken. The orange in the windows is the brick building across the street–the new part of the plant.
The lower floors of King Elevator are scrapped and ruined. Nearly everything that is not concrete has been destroyed. Some time ago it seems that someone built a tarp-roof hovel inside of the ground floor.
The brick substation and the wooden storage shed are the last two structures from The Milwaukee Road’s operations at Loweth.
“Place Tripod Here” my friends would say. But for me, it’s the money shot. Note the painting around the inside of the skylight.
