The elevator tower seems to have been built with expansion of the dock in mind.
Past the underground repair shop is this cliffside adit.
While the last of the Studebaker production buildings were being demolished, I visited again. Here’s a shot taken shortly after the demolition crew left for the day.
Two signatures complement this gorgeous hand-painted sign. ‘Bowers’ from 1987 and ‘Normal’ from 1982. The blocking on the letters is still visible!
Fall fog swept up from the river valley, making the building look more like it felt–a ghost, out of time and place.
Either the company was pulling parts from this evaporator to use as parts for other plants, or the last thing the workers did was to get this machine ready for the next campaign. Either way, plans changed.
The most derelict of the old bonded warehouses. Note the barrel elevator on the side of it!
In what used to be a hallway under what used to be a skyway, each with what had conveyor belts for the grain that once was stored here. The fog doesn’t change.
The superstructure for the sea-leg skyways serves no purpose now… the offices are bricked up, too. Why?
