Looking out of the “back door”, where equipment could be lifted into the factory with a crane. The bottom of the coal conveyor can be seen outside.
The Port Arthur elevator row, as seen from the edge of Fort William.
One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
I didn’t test the rungs, but I bet the view was incredible.
Some of the earlier buildings were dressed up with brick facades.
The fiery side of a launch building, just is it began to rain.
The American Victory next to M, seen late at night.
My favorite shot from the trip. Later in its life, the plant was converted to burn its own byproducts, but it seems this was designed as a coal hopper.
The conveyor belt prevented cranes from accessing the left side of the dock, so cranes were mounted to the gantry crane to maintain the ore chutes on the side.
