The company headquarters. Abandoned last time I drove past it, though it is the classiest building in downtown South Bend.
Originally, this part of the dock was reserved for the weather station.
The well-worn chair in one larry’s operator cab, next to an overgrown coke battery.
The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings.
Where the tailings boom meets the mill.
The control room for the whole of the plant. Sinterband here means one of the sintering lines. Temperatures, gasses, mixtures, speeds, and so on were centrally controlled here.
Reflections of graffiti during spring melt.
A theater turned skate park. How did that happen?
A broken window looking through the First Aid Room and into the Control Room in charge of directing grain into ships. You can see one of the large conveyors on the right, clad in green. Chutes and staircases intertwine seemingly randomly through the big empty spaces.
