One of my favorite shots of the headhouse at the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool #4, with one seagull threading the needle. The socket holes on the frame got blown out thanks to my bad developing, but I like the effect. Arista 100.
The first step of the filtering process is being spun through this tube.
Looking from the shaft room into the room where an electric hoist would be.
Pipes to channel nitrose (think nitro glycerine) infused acid through the building.
These were some of the most attractive shops of all the mines in the area. It’s no wonder Hanna Mining wanted to use them as their center of operations in the Iron River district.
The most patriotic wallpaper I’ve seen.
Looking into the half-demolished, half-dismantled conveyor for the sea leg.
ADM-Delmar #1- Maintainance Department. The stainless steel bits are part of the grain dryer added in the 1940s. The workhouse itself (the larger tower) was a dedicated Cleaning House, meaning that grain passed through both these buildings to be rid of dust, dirt and extra moisture before storage. In the foreground is the old ADM locker room and pipe department.
The stone chapel sits beside the main house and received a particularly heavy dose of gothic architectural touches.
Bits and things in a pile in the corner of the smelter, the unsold chunks of industrial history that didn’t sell at an on-site auction before my visit.
