Circa-1960s graffiti. Someone got their ass kicked.
On the left is the 1907 elevator section and its 1926 expansion is on the right. Interesting how the century-old silos seem to be faring better. Windows provided light to the underground conveyor tunnels, which were used to bring grain out of the silos by gravity.
The power pulley that ran air compressors straight off of the steam plant’s axel.
Scrappers tried to take this steel pulley out of Fisher, but it proved too heavy.
Beautiful doors separated the boiler room and the sugar mill. Can you imagine the gracefully curving steps in a power plant today?
On the ground floor of the main factory there seems to be only one chair left.
A century-old ghost sign for Royal House Flour was preserved after a building is built above and through it! Looking from the north annex elevator toward the headhouse.
Taken as I drove out of Silverton, CO. One of my favorite landscapes of 2015. Want a print? Email me!
