…somebody get the number of that truck! Near the Day Rooms in the Paying Patient ward.
Demolition crews got a taste of this 5-story power plant and decided to take a month-long smoke break. Here’s the bite.
To the right is the spiral staircase. This building had a definite “floor problem”.
Taken from the arm of the pocket loader–note the tree growing out of the conveyor belt. Often where you see old piles of taconite, trees are springing up. The byproducts of the pelletization process break down and make a really fertile mix, especially with all the iron content!
Sunrise in SEMI. The shadow of Kurth Malt is cast across ADM-Delmar #1. Clouds behind ADM-Delmar #4 light up. It’s cold and the air smells like train grease.
Shadows of the timberwork and cribbing are cast across cracked lake ice. My footprints follow cat tracks.
The control room floats above the top of the dock atop a spiral staircase.
My favorite shot from the trip. Later in its life, the plant was converted to burn its own byproducts, but it seems this was designed as a coal hopper.
An abandoned news stand between the concourse and ticket booths. This is one of my favorite pictures from the 2000s.
