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.
“The fresh snow mixed indistinguishably from the ashes of the half-demolished power plant.”
The power plant of the Old Crow distillery was mostly original. I didn’t have a tripod, so I had to balance my camera on the equipment there.
These machines are at least 100 years old.
This rod mill (?) was made in Denver Colorado at a factory now buried by condos. #justdenverthings

Looking into the Pool 8 Annex from the original Ogilvie’s elevator.
The perfect place to have a post-industrial picnic.
The powerhouse was notably older than the rest of the complex. I’m still not sure if it was build just for the cooperage, or whether it preceded it.
