A look at another “Belt-o-Vator”. I like the sign.
Part of the grain dust venting system, dislodged from its place above the dumping hatches under the grain cribs.
A ruined platform on the railyard platform side of the warehouse.
Entrance to the plant. Hermes holds his iconic caduceus and a Model T. Demeter holds a tractor in a motif of wheat. A fantastic reimagining of the Greek, with an excerpt of the following quote by Sir Joshua Reynolds (18th century English painter): “Excellence is never granted to man but as the reward of labor. It argues no small strength of mind to persevere in habits of industry without the pleasure of perceiving those advances, which, like the hand of a clock, whilst they make hourly approaches to their point, yet proceed so slowly as to escape observation.”
The main stage and the retired (and in this instance, scrambled) marquee that will be repaired and reinstalled above Superior Street. A former manager of the building I used to photograph Nopeming with told me that the letters for the Art Deco tower are stored somewhere in the NorShor to this day, but I did not see them (and frankly, I doubt it).
“This way,” then, “No, that way!”
Bits of pulp hang from a rough grate on the first floor of the plant, which was dark because all of the equipment blocked the light. This is a grate picture.
This machine was last overhauled in February 1955, and last turned out Crepe silk, probably dress material.
Typical New Mexico ranch fencing. The power lines follow the rails between Springer and Wagon Mound.
