A quick vertical panorama taken on my back at the sweet spot of a great summer sunset. On the skylight is the torch-cut catwalk that used to link the outside of the smokestacks that vented the cupolas.
Mitchell Avenue, the main drag of a ghost town. Traces of asphalt and curbs are barely visible through patches of grass. In the old plan of the town, Mitchell Hotel would be to my direct left in this scene, and about 10 houses would flank this street to the left and right.
Another perfect Indianan sunset alights like a bird on the tops of the vent houses and tree-packed smokestacks.
2013. As part of the Head House’s facelift, it’s gotten new windows. However, you can now still see where the conveyor-way connected this building with the elevators behind it in the upper right of the image.
A gymnasium, if I recall. The last building before the road dead-ends.
One of my favorite night views of Fort Snelling’s so-called Upper Post, taken between snowstorms.
Like a grave marker, a single post remembers where Dock 3 stood on the bay.
Van Dyke Cab Company and Yellow Cab served the terminal in lieu of a streetcar loop downtown, which was planned but never built.
For a short time, CN mounted flood lights atop the abandoned dock.
