Looking at the side of the Superior Elevator from the tracks that feed the Western. Note the old flagpole.
Looking up at the LEMP malting plant elevator. Look at that BRICKWORK!

A ship passes the abandoned dock on its way to Duluth. Taconite dust stains the sides of its hull red.
Far away, you can see the red lights on the steam plant smokestack. To the extreme right is the beginning of the Minneapolis skyline.

Looking toward Fort William (Western) Elevator from the top of Superior Elevator. Fort William is bordered on the south and east by this wide, winding railyard. Note the pretty and quaint brick offices of the Western.
