On the middle level of the Poacher House. For a detailed view of the chart see ‘See Reverse’.
One of the early automated painting booths in the paint plant line.
One of the only extant assembly line tracks in the body painting department. No photographer leaves Fisher 21 without capturing some version of this spot; hope you like mine.
The two antennae are retracted–the position they would be in if the base was under attack.
The old mill (right) and power plant (left) with the new mill behind them.
One of the few windows that escaped steel plating the last time the hospital was sealed tight to let nature roam within.
Looking from the crane-motor catwalk into the Calumet. The arm shown here with the pulleys looped through it would have been lowered and the bucket conveyor in it would throw grain to waiting ships and boats bound for flour mills and foreign lands.
Looking at the tallest part of the plant from a skeletal loading dock. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.
The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus. The smaller elevator replaced an earlier smaller warehouse in 1926. Taken shortly after dawn. This one picture made the drive worth it, for me. Medium Format.
