For reasons unknown, this building’s concrete was designed a little thinly. It reminds me of a Chicago, IL building constructed during WWI when concrete and steel were strictly rationed and many buildings went up with insufficient superstructures. I do not have a build date for this one yet.
The boilers are gone, but round brick portals remain where they used to meet the walls of the boiler room. Behind it appears to be the coal bunker itself.

Looking from the main shop into the boiler shop, one of three attached buildings that specialized in certain repairs. One thing that architectural photographers have to work with is an elongated “magic hour” with ideal shadowing and coloring–this photo is a result of that lighting.
Between the repair shops and the stock department is this odd little structure. No, the walls are not level–it’s not your eyes. The shops slope left, the structure slopes right.
Between the catwalks of Furnace 6, the molted ore would flow through the chute.
The end of the dock, done quickly and cheaply with wood. The towers were for lights, so ships could be loaded at all hours.
If there was a problem with the conveyor belt, the grain would go out these chutes.
In the mine offices, hooks and a board with numbers was the system to keep track of who was in the mine and who was safe.
