Part of the plant has been reused as a scrap metal yard.
One of my favorite signs, informing workers about to descend into the open-top grain bins about basic procedures. This was in ADM-Annex 1 (connected to the cleaning house via skyway), so it will never be seen again, unless the sign lands luckily when the elevator is demolished.
When I looked out of the old mill, I couldn’t help but wonder what the hell was holding it all up.
One of my favorite shots from that year, conveyor line parts stacked and hung with Postal Service bins from decades ago.
A broken signal light that would indicate to incoming engineers and brakemen the status of the dock deck. The streetlight-style lighting is a retrofit; originally the top of the dock would be lit by strings of lights suspended by towers on each side of the deck… a poor system according to the workers at Allouez who had the same lights.
Looking into the Argo Tunnel at its Idaho Springs portal. I was hoping to see tracks and a steel door, but found a busy crew of environmental workers installing a pipe between the bulkhead and new water plant.
A crack in a window in a wall. What’s this doing here?
From the street, it’s clear that almost every window and door had boards over it, but not every building had a roof. Silly priorities.
One of the former sanitorium common rooms. Its interior is at the end of one of the wards and is lined with glass brick.
