A buck-fifty shot for a postcard stand. Taken from the Stone Arch Bridge.
The last time the city sealed this door, they must have been changing out old road signs.
A cracked sign at dock-level, where loading boats would be tied below the taconite conveyors. All across the surface of the concrete dock were taconite pellets, like slippery little marbles. One wrong step could put a worker in the water, which is a bad, bad place to be.
Every elevator has sets of these conveyor switches. Grain comes down through the top chute and the bottom chute rotates to move the flow onto various belts around the plant by gravity. The cross belt is another switch and the bridge belt brings the flow to the other half of the elevator.
The stage of the theatre still holds hymnals and other vestiges of its time as a church.
One of the generators, weeks before it was taken apart to be shipped to another power plant somewhere else.
This sign was important when trains ran the length of the elevator.
The great stenciled number on this chute caught my eye.
An engine on display outside the Montana Territorial Prison in Deer Lodge, MT. This was a typical electric locomotive used by The Milwaukee Road.
