The fantastic red elevator that is Pool #61, built 1928.
On the second floor of the kettle building where corn mash was boiled, holes where tanks once sat were everywhere.
The concrete walls, heavy steel blast doors, and plastic roof tell me that this was one of the shell loading buildings.
Two charmers, I’m sure. This area was a coal pit for the nearby power plant.
The back of the castle is barely visible through the trees that have grown thick around the walls, making it look so much older.
An old nurse’s station (you can tell because of the half-door with table) with torn-up tiles. Notice through the curved doorway that even the ceiling has a curvature.
As photographed from a cement piling for Slip #3 poured in 1935, disconnected from land by erosion. How do I know the date? A pair of steamship engineers carved their initials and ranks into the wet cement!
Let’s play a game called “FIND THE PIGEON”! There is one bird in this photo of dust collectors atop the King Elevator train shed.
