Looking toward the museum from a broken window on the side of the concrete tower. The sign on top lights everything a dull pink-orange.
Delmar #4 is like two elevators in one, in capacity and design.
Looking up at the network of elevators at the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. Its train shed doors stand open under the void where conveyors should be. You can see where they used to connect on the left and right. The outside of the building is covered in racist graffiti.
Often the quickest way to move between buildings was to take the roof. The inside of the complex was so maze-like, I don’t know how I would have found my way around.
The building on the right was where parts not assembled onto vehicles would be set in crates for shipment.
Watching the sun set behind downtown Detroit is my favorite memory from the building.
Looking at ADM-1 from beside ADM-4, back when ADM-4 had a train shed and ADM-1 had a skyway. In the thick woods beneath the skyway was a long time homeless camp… most of its residents were very friendly.
The doorframes become more askew every year as the buildings slip downward into the gulch at different rates. This seems to be the part of the mine ruins where transients leave their marks. The graffiti dated back to the 1970s, at least.
The Peavey logo, before it rusted off and the offices were demolished.
