A tunnel connecting the two larger caves in the hill; those that Jacob vented in the rear. The vents are still extant!
Looking up at the network of elevators at the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. Its train shed doors stand open under the void where conveyors should be. You can see where they used to connect on the left and right. The outside of the building is covered in racist graffiti.
