David Aho, the owner of Mitchell Engine House, poses beside the boiler.
Looking toward Mitchell from its last building.
I love the big old industrial windows.
In most places, it may seem off for there to be a tunnel door on the top floor of a building, but Ford was that kind of place. This door from the steam plant led into a skyway and tunnel that connected to the main assembly floor.
In the power house corner is this gratuitously gigantic doorway. It used to be even bigger, too, as indicated by the brick arch another foot over the top windows.
Looking out the second-floor lighthouse office window. On this visit, the last ice of the season was slowly drifting into the harbor.
From the catwalks below the hoisting motor in Shaft No. 1.
Sluice tables stretch into the darkness.
The north side of the plant is modern 60s industrial architecture, meaning massive open spaces with no personality. This mirror is the most interesting thing I could find.
