Looking toward the power station at the edge of the explosives plant.
Some local kids were having a fire extinguisher fight when I walked into the lab one day.
An alarm panel in the powerpplant, now demolished.
One of my favorite shots from that year, conveyor line parts stacked and hung with Postal Service bins from decades ago.
Looking up to the second floor of the Nitrating House, where cotton would be soaked in nitric acid. These brought cotton into the building.
This old ward, not a victim of remodeling, still has metal screens over the open windows of the doors. It should be obvious why glass were not used.
Little has changed inside the mill, but since it was built in 1916, many tanks and ancillary buildings have popped up around it.
My first night on Minneapolis’ Lighthouse–now an old picture and distant memory… I still remember the exhilaration and the view of the city off one edge of the roof and the Mississippi River over the other.
The end of the new elevator. Line of bird droppings follow the fire sprinkler pipes and wires in the room.
