The Engine House’s boiler, which would have been fired all day all day, virtually from the day the shop opened until the day it closed.
The sun unzipped the clouds. Mist blew across the harbor.
Lit by the glow of St. Paul’s West Seventh bars, highlighted by the cool blue of the sleepy section of South Side. This castle-like tower can be seen for miles around town; a Landmark at the brewery that brewed a brew by the that name.

The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus.
