Looking from abandoned to active. The end of Dock 6 often has a crane and some shacks on it, as the chutes aren’t used anymore. Instead, conveyors are installed on the land-side of the dock that fill docked vessels, making the end of the dock little more than a breakwater and a place to park repair and recovery equipment.
From atop a concrete slap that seals the old path of Mine Shaft #3, I loop up into the hoisting room.
It is unclear when the ‘Superior Warehouse Company’ sign was put up, but it was likely around 1916-1917, when maps indicate it served as a dry goods warehouse, operated by Twohy-Eimon Mercantile Company. The Sivertson sign was likely added in the mid-1980s. In this image I tried to preserve the colors the bricks turn at sunset.
Ultimately, it was the bad roof that doomed these buildings.

One of my favorite visual feature of grain elevators, especially big ones, is how they repeat.
An observation room, possibly for children, has drapes around a 2-way mirror. You know, to dress up the fact that someone could be watching anonymously on the other side.
The top floor of the Dominion Elevator. Acros 100 on 120.
Hiking into the ghost town with enough gear to live there for a few days, if we wanted.
