This picture gives you the idea of how the boat-loading control rooms are set up; they lean over the dock and Lake Superior to be able to see down into the holds of the boats… important, considering how quickly it loaded the boats!

Rubber dock boots still sits under the desk in the dock office, near keys to rusted locks and files of fired employees.
In a protected wing of a launcher are these empty server racks where guidance and control computers were stored.
