Pilot House Pride “What’s that diamond thingy on the Pilot House?” you ask? It’s a 1920s-era radio transmission direction finder, a pre-radar navigation aid. Lit with diffused flash. Similar Images ...based on the tags: antennae, light-painted, radar, rusty, staircases, vignettes... The end of the dock, done quickly and cheaply with wood. The towers were for lights, so ships could be loaded at all hours. Peering through the glass in the Hoist Operator’s cab, stained with graffiti. The cable and reels can be seen through the glass… these are now gone. One of the covered rail loading docks. All of them were overgrown and rust-clad. An old stoker in a power plant that was abandoned long before the mill next to it, by all indications. Sugar mills burned dry beet pulp pellets for fuel. An original stencil-brushed sign. A long exposure under the trestle-like approach to the dock, under which trains still pass regularly. The overgrown offices serve no one at this former Federal Elevator in Snowflake, MB. Even without the kettles the Hamm’s brewhouse is beautifully lit, ornamented architecturally and begging for photographers to remember it. In a strange loft next to the brewhouse are these twin kettles, which seem much older than the main kettles in the brewhouse.
