The southernmost houses in Gilman are seen through the pines on the right, near the tram stop.
A nice view of the aurora borealis (“Northern Lights”) strong enough to outshine the industrial lighting at the power plant. The lights in the foreground direct ships discharging coal for the station.

A delivery alley that cuts straight into the middle of the brewery complex.
Identical warehouses seem a little newer than the rest of the plant. I suspect these were added in the mid-1950s for the Korean War, during which about 200 buildings were added to the complex.
Platforms and abandoned outbuildings, as seen in 2005.
Like many mill-style buildings of the time, the Twohy’s loading doors (in this case, the delivery wagon doors) opened to an elevator shaft. This design cut down on loading time, as long as the elevator was operational. Of course, if it was otherwise occupied, there could be no traffic through the exterior doors!
An elevator is reflected in the flooded footprint of Spencer & Kellogg. These trains are in storage for the winter.
