"Limestone for Duluth"
(24.5 x 18.5 in.), $6000.00
As twilight passes, the September evening sky changes from sapphire to a deep, indigo blue allowing the three bright, diagonal stars in the belt of the constellation of Orion the Hunter to show themselves. Slowly, the darkening skies allow a myriad of other, far off worlds to display themselves as well.
The rising, crescent moon over the horizon and the distant, sprawling Midwest Energy Terminal in Superior, WI., enhances the celestial masterpiece. Adding to this spectacle are the operational lights of the self-unloading 767 foot S/S Arthur M. Anderson as the vessel discharges Michigan limestone into the hopper at Dock # 6 of the Canadian National Railway Ore Docks in Duluth, MN. From the hopper the limestone goes by conveyor belt to a stacker and then is piled. Eventually the limestone gets railed up north to mines on Minnesota?s Iron Range to be used in the iron ore pellet making process.
When the Anderson completes the unloading it will then begin loading iron ore pellets at the same dock, destined for Gary, IN.
