Looking toward the Quenching Tower from the coal tower platform.
Squinting from the top floor through the skyway, one can feel small, like they’re in a heavy industrial dollhouse.
Like many mill-style buildings of the time, the Twohy’s loading doors (in this case, the delivery wagon doors) opened to an elevator shaft. This design cut down on loading time, as long as the elevator was operational. Of course, if it was otherwise occupied, there could be no traffic through the exterior doors!
A depiction of historic Liège, known for its rivers and hills.
Even in monochrome, you can probably tell what colors were over Hastings that evening: Red, White, and Blue.
The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus. The smaller elevator replaced an earlier smaller warehouse in 1926. Taken shortly after dawn. This one picture made the drive worth it, for me. Medium Format.
One of two projectors, still set to run old 3D flicks.
The front of the school overlooks the town of Birtle, Manitoba. It replaced a circa-1894 building which was a little farther down the hill.
