Off the beaten path is this old LTV sign. Now it points to a ghost town and dead dock.
Imagine with yellow window guards are eyebrows and the open windows are the eyes. This headframe seems a bit curious.
A long exposure in the wind, lit by airport lights.
Under the monster and its teeth.
The middle section of the smokestacks were coal hoppers, and this device would load the coal into the hoppers from the conveyor belt it rode across. The bottom section of the stacks were storage rooms while the very top were, surprise, chimneys for the power plant.
A dead belt-o-vator.
A row of security lights line the roof of the power station.
When I first saw Ogilvie’s from the ground, I promised myself to look back when i found my way into this little pitched outcropping which seemed to have the best view of Thunder Bay I could imagine. It turns out, though, that there is no floor in that section; it is just extended machine access! Oh well. Mount McKay in the background in the last light.
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.
