This is a great example of a combination rock house; the silos below used to fill trains with ore dropped from mine cars pulled to the top of the structure.
You can see almost ever level of the factory from this spot.
The roof has been replaced since this was taken. Hopefully, that will stem the water damage.
After climbing the elevator shaft to the illusive second level, a new pallet of colors were revealed.
Beside the shaft building are two fans on skids, indicating they were used underground.
The BOMARC launch buildings are spaced on a large concrete pad that looks like a parking lot. Out of view are underground pipes for fueling and cooling the rocket motors.
Storms and waves, focused by the Port of Wisconsin entry have focused the faces to tear-up these boards below.
The main shaft’s cable spooled with bird castings belies the fact that lives used to dangle from its steel-wound strength. Arrows on the circles would indicate the mine level the cars were currently at.
Looking out of the demolished skyway. Note the big hole in the floor. The lens is too wide to keep my foot out of it… I’m hanging in the superstructure that I climbed to make this photo.
