The conveyor between the shore and Dock 2. Note the gap in the aerial walkway that used to connect Dock 4 to the rest of the complex.
The end of Dock 5 is warped and bent from a rail accident that left some ore cars swinging like a stringy wrecking ball into the end of the superstructure and accompanying stair. The stairs are still navigable, but it wasn’t recommended by the CN workers that were with me.
The blast pit carried the smoke and flame from the rocket motor away from the other base buildings.
On the National Mine property are two shafts, both serving the same workings. This one seems to have gotten some upgrades in the 1960s, judging from the condition of the metal.
Looking out across the elevator row from Portland Huron’s roof. Don’t you love the color of the sky?
Looking at the concrete headframe from street level. Acros 100 in Pentax 67
Taken from atop a grain train at the end of Cargill B-2, looking toward Lake Superior “I”, now part of the sample complex. This area used to have another slip, but Cargill filled it on when it built the elevator on the right.
It’s a small world… look at it.
The concrete walls, heavy steel blast doors, and plastic roof tell me that this was one of the shell loading buildings.
