Looking up the Dominion Elevator’s tower. I especially like this picture because it shows how so much of the electrical conduits wound round through the mostly hollow space.
The ice around the dock, compressed by the waves, was less clear than the open ice.
Standing where the Final Assembly Building used to hum and staring across the former site of the Sheet Metal and Spring buildings. Today, of course, the Foundry is gone as well, so you’d be looking across Prairie Ave.
Paperwork litters the floors of the zinc mine offices.
The main staircase of the old hospital had… problems.
Identical warehouses seem a little newer than the rest of the plant. I suspect these were added in the mid-1950s for the Korean War, during which about 200 buildings were added to the complex.
It would be a shame if this building is not preserved. Word is (as of 2015) that construction may start on this section soon.
The boiler room has four big boilers in it, which seems like overkill. No wonder this plant could supply power to the works and the town at full capacity!
The power lines follow the street, down to the mineshaft. Everything revolved around the mine, it seemed.
