Steel mine hoists, near the place they worked, wait for scrap prices to justify their final removal from Osceola, Michigan.
This tunnel goes to the adit over the Eagle River Mills. I bet those carts go fast down here!
One of a few rolling workbenches to keep the thousands of pulleys, cogs, and belts working properly.
One of my favorite pictures of the tunnel. I am holding a bike rim and wearing a headlamp. My friend triggered the flash just behind my lower back. The fog is a temperature inversion at the entrance of the tunnel; it was 102 degrees outside of the tunnel and about 50 degrees inside, and humid.
Heavy steel doors to isolate the underground magnetic separation mill from Eagle Mine’s main tunnel.
One thing that struck me as a midwesterner in the South was the vines. They seem to be able to completely cover a building when left alone for a few decades.
Perhaps this office was for a film studio or music producer.
The belts on these mills have long ben missing.
An outfall for 43rd Avenue Creek. Let’s rename it Substreet Creek; isn’t that a better name?
