The same view in 2007. Superior, WI, some have said, is a suburb of Duluth, MN. It’s more like a sub-suburb, I would argue. It’s the industrial district that is technically in another state, one that sells beer on Sundays. Perspective is looking out of the mostly-disassembled larger (newer) elevator.
The stairs that connect the breakwater and light station (Leica M6/Kodak Ektar).
When not running 24 hours a day during a campaign, the plant was being repaired. Every sugar mill has a large shop and parts room for those times.
An interesting crane in the back of the machine shop. It seems very light duty, so I am not certain what it was used for.
Some of the doors had sliding plastic windows, but most of the older ward doors simply had these peep holes drilled through them. The inside was always marked and worn more than the outside.
Sheet metal over the windows. A red boot sole in the tumbleweeds. Is it inside, or outside?
Christmas lights from the time Island Station was an art studio lean against a rusty boiler.
It was a strange choice, although I appreciate it, for the firm reusing the shops to brick up the doorways while leaving the doors.
The lights of the active docks keep the retired #6 up all night.
