Consolidated D/General Mills A General Mills bought Consolidated Elevator’s “D” in 1943 and renamed it “A,” though no additional elevators have followed from that firm to date. Visible on the right is the first annex, built along with the elevator in 1909. Similar Images ...based on the tags: chutes, ghost-signs, power, signs, silos, trains... Outside the Chateau, where the fuel oil tank blocks the chapel. The back door into the old distillery building. Not castle-like at all, sadly. Looking out at the abandoned neighborhood around the house. A sign hanging near the shop office. Looking out of the top of the grain tower at Duluth. An elevator is reflected in the flooded footprint of Spencer & Kellogg. These trains are in storage for the winter. The sidewalks are littered with rocks. Kurth bears a ghost sign. Recently, its main sign was destroyed by graffiti artists in 2015. The concrete annex elevator had interesting graffiti. Much of it from the 1980s and 1990s.
