Looking from abandoned to active. The end of Dock 6 often has a crane and some shacks on it, as the chutes aren’t used anymore. Instead, conveyors are installed on the land-side of the dock that fill docked vessels, making the end of the dock little more than a breakwater and a place to park repair and recovery equipment.
On the left is a bathroom, which is why it has the wire mesh over the door; so it could be locked and still be ventilated. On the right side are small double-bed rooms, which still have their heavy wooden doors. More attractive than jail cell doors, but serving the same purpose.
Thunder Bay Elevator, now stands without a headhouse. Around the silos, a few shacks still stand.
Looking out across the elevator row from Portland Huron’s roof. Don’t you love the color of the sky?
In the middle of Electric Steel, dust collector vents cross-cross out of sight.
The crumbling building barely contained the colors inside of it.
The “Bentleyville” Christmas tree, part of a winter light show, in storage.
Different colors stained the small panes on the top floor. For once, it seemed more ridiculous to not be inside an abandoned factory.
Grain is taken from the bottom of the silos through a conveyor in a tunnel. These blowers keep the air in the tunnel fresh.
