It would be a shame if this building is not preserved. Word is (as of 2015) that construction may start on this section soon.
When I first saw Ogilvie’s from the ground, I promised myself to look back when i found my way into this little pitched outcropping which seemed to have the best view of Thunder Bay I could imagine. It turns out, though, that there is no floor in that section; it is just extended machine access! Oh well. Mount McKay in the background in the last light.
Delmar #4 is like two elevators in one, in capacity and design.
The powered lime hopper had a lot of levels.
Looking up the Dominion Elevator’s tower. I especially like this picture because it shows how so much of the electrical conduits wound round through the mostly hollow space.
There is no denying that the Fergus Falls asylum was a beautiful place, especially around sunset.
Holes were cut into the floor to extract equipment from the basements. it was interesting to see the I-beams extending through all the levels of Studebaker.
The roof was in bad shape, but too beautiful to avoid. This is the spot were I used to study medieval Latin.
This is part of the oldest section of factory, one that hasn’t had a roof in a long time and all usable equipment has been extracted. The machines pictured would spin sliced beets in boiling water… it was a sealed system before someone cut holes on sides of each unit.
