Last time in the Charlevoix St. Mary's Plant with a motor. Sad day here.

As part of a work-related tour. 107 years old at the time of the photo.
Took this while on a tour of the Challenger. Such a beautiful ship.
Had a tour of the ship related to some work I'm doing on the Port of Chicago/Calumet River. There's talk of cutting her up and making her a barge. That's sad as she's a beauty.
