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.
The building in the foreground–the old control booth–was arsoned in 2009.
Around the corner from the old boiler room.
On the scale of the big machine shop, the huge piles of clothing look insignificant.
The old way to get to the elevator from the mill.
Fire buckets did not have flat bottoms so they could never be used for other buckety tasks, and were thus always handy in an actual fire.
Note the large belt pulley in the center of the frame. Follow the axel it’s on and you’ll see several belts still attached to the drive, which was originally steam-driven.
A polaroid (FP100c, actually) of the newer grain car dumper.
The two exhaust vents coming out from the boilers en route to the stacks. Plywood marks where where catwalks were removed to extract equipment.
