Peering out of the porthole of the light tower, I saw the shadow of the station on the lake.
Looking at the boarded exterior of the newer area of the orphanage from its 1914 section.
A damaged roof channeled rain onto the adobe walls, cutting them in half. In the distance, a preserved house and the ruins of the Colmor School.
Looking from one workhouse at another, with the other residents of Mill Hell falling into place as the distance grows. Across the rail yard you can see Froedert Malt elevator and Calumet.
A morning breeze pushes the last ice from the lake against Wisconsin Point.
I had to search the shelves a while to find this old logbook. The open page lists changes in stock numbers for Cutler Hammer Coils, and one row says that a new coil was installed on the black larry. The larry is the machine that loads coke ovens.
The beacon was installed in 1938 and removed in the mid-2000s.
