The roof of the elevator was partly lit naturally with six big skylights. The less electricity pumped into a grain elevator, the less chance of a grain dust explosion.
Two bin signs criss-cross in the North Annex.
This roof hasn’t budged under the weight of snow, instead it just filters-through the light onto the floor.
A diesel crane and conveyor belt tripper are the major pieces of equipment that dominate the dock.
This is a room where the actual explosive elements were mixed. In the event of an accident, this glass wall would give way before the concrete and thus direct the flames and shockwave away from the rest of the building. In other words, the glass is not just to get a lot of wonderful natural light into the building.
A view from the loft in the shipping/receiving building, where the crane operator would step into his cab.
The old men’s ward is an example of what the hospital resembled before part of the complex was modernized. Small rooms, light switches outside the door, small observation windows set into heavy wood. If you ask me, though, the tile work across the floors is the most spectacular.
It looks like this doorway was bricked up while the building behind it was still being used as a rail shop.
Birch shadows on stone walls… have you been looking at my Christmas list?
