A fireproof room in the basement, perhaps for ammunition storage at one time.
Old parts catalogs litter the floor. The office overlooks empty shelves. Graffiti glue peeling paint in place.

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.
A panorama of the Shipping/Receiving building on the northeast end of the block. In the old days this would be facing the ‘Dry Dock Hotel’, a boarding house owned by the company, presumably for the use of the men having their boats repaired here.
This sawtooth roof collapsed months later under the weight of an early snow.
The green-tinted skylight makes this a bright green corridor, the lower of the two skyways connecting the two workhouses.
A fallen branch smashed out this skylight years ago, and since then the bees have found this tiny toilet a perfect home. This is part of the hotel where employees slept.
