2011. Harris Machinery as seen from the roof of ADM-Delmar Elevator #4.
I made this picture to give the reader a sense of the slope between the mine buildings and the base of the concentrator. The whole area was really steep, and sometimes required scrambling to get up and down the Picayune Gulch for short distances.
One of the walls of the train shed was growing, thanks to a little bit of sunlight and a constant trickle of rainwater over it. FP-100C.
When I looked out of the old mill, I couldn’t help but wonder what the hell was holding it all up.
On the boarded-up first floor of the house proper near the door to the chapel, the last pew sites next to a wet box of Bibles.
This floor of the workhouse had corkscrew conveyors–big augers–in the floor to move material around. Most of the walls that were metal were missing, leaving the concrete structure and open doors.
The offices, cleared out pending fire inspection. Now it’s full of stuff again.
Furnace #6; its catwalk and tapway. Note the lever-operated gutter-blockers.
