Taconite Harbor’s main road, now overgrown and leading to nothing. Just asphalt between caved-in curbs.
Without a conveyor belt, this tripper seems lost. The job of this machine was simply to take grains from the moving conveyor belt and eject it into the silos via the chutes on the sides. Note all the dust collection venting added to the machine to suck up any explosive grain dust.
Hand painted fire extinguisher notices and a long room which I strongly suspect was a pattern cutting room.
The historical entrance.
A pipe bracket seems to have rusted off of the ceiling.

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.
Note the severed skyway–that led to a set of grain elevators that have since been demolished.
A firedoor dating to the original car barn is roped off, anticipating demolition.
