A quick vertical panorama taken on my back at the sweet spot of a great summer sunset. On the skylight is the torch-cut catwalk that used to link the outside of the smokestacks that vented the cupolas.
A typical wall in the base.
A high-ceilinged room where kegs would be delivered for cleaning, before they were refilled with fresh booze.
When the factory’s production line was up for auction, many parts were removed, crated and labeled with big painted numbers to ease their removal by buyers. Not everything sold, however, so not one dark corner of the factory seems without a pile of dislocated industrial junk.
There big filters helped the mill sort through the flour, for additional milling, for example.
Where the tailings boom meets the mill.
Looking across the catwalk behind the ore chutes, when they were up, and at the top of the ore chutes during loading.
Beside the half-demolished Thunder Bay Elevator shops and offices (brick building) are some rusting fishing boats. A little bit of SWP #7 is seen in the upper right.
A wimpy crane by most standards, only suitable for moving around parts of steam turbines.
