A screened water wheel, presumably for rotating the dredge once it lowered its “foot” to pivot in place.
Looking up from the industrial courtyard.
One chute drops grain on a conveyor for storage in the north silo cluster, while another is ready to deposit the flow where the conveyor cannot reach. Instead of engineering the belt to trip in reverse, the silos under the workhouses have their own chutes.
A broken window looking through the First Aid Room and into the Control Room in charge of directing grain into ships. You can see one of the large conveyors on the right, clad in green. Chutes and staircases intertwine seemingly randomly through the big empty spaces.
A ‘Hot Metal Car’ that would transport molten steel across the ‘Hot Metal Bridge’ from the furnaces to the mills.
The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings.
A burned and rusted control panel in the corner of the new hoist room.
Stained windows and sheet metal catch the sunset from across the Ohio River.
Drawn in fresh concrete about 50 years before I took this picture, and only 2 years after this elevator blew up…
