Kodak Tri-X 400, Leica M7. Serious enough to write across the side of the tank, but not serious enough to have a sign made.
A polaroid (FP100c, actually) of the newer grain car dumper.
A long exposure under the trestle-like approach to the dock, under which trains still pass regularly.
Originally, this part of the dock was reserved for the weather station.

It is unclear when the ‘Superior Warehouse Company’ sign was put up, but it was likely around 1916-1917, when maps indicate it served as a dry goods warehouse, operated by Twohy-Eimon Mercantile Company. The Sivertson sign was likely added in the mid-1980s. In this image I tried to preserve the colors the bricks turn at sunset.
Next to the pit in the maintenance shop is “The Wall”… where rail workers wrote about interesting happenings at Shoreham.
Two charmers, I’m sure. This area was a coal pit for the nearby power plant.
