Circa-1960s graffiti. Someone got their ass kicked.
One of my favorite shots from that year, conveyor line parts stacked and hung with Postal Service bins from decades ago.
The former express concourse, as seen in 2005.
Looking at the rear of the mill, through dead vines and barbed wire.
King Elevator sits in the corner of a more recently-defunct lumber mill: Great Western Timber. Perhaps in the future I will write the history of it. Arista 100 in 120.
In a now-demolished building, a skylight begins to separate.
The top three floors were removed from the top of the Temple Opera Block (right). If you have a sharp eye, you can see the outlines of some of the old floors on the shared wall of the Orpheum (left). For a time, the front of the building held a bus stop.
In the bottom of a creek, an antique children’s wheelchair is buried in grass, where someone threw it. Wooden leg braces suggest this dates to the 1950s.
