To the right is the spiral staircase. This building had a definite “floor problem”.
Winter skies over Allouez Bay. From a distance, it looks almost fragile.
The great stenciled number on this chute caught my eye.
Without a conveyor belt, this tripper seems lost. The job of this machine was simply to take grains from the moving conveyor belt and eject it into the silos via the chutes on the sides. Note all the dust collection venting added to the machine to suck up any explosive grain dust.
My friends know that redheads are my greatest weakness.
A staircase leads behind three of the dock chutes, seemingly to nowhere. The lower on the left held one end of a string of lights above the dock.
The basement of the laboratories is the home of the ore grinder. I’m sure it was noisy.
At the top of the elevator was a distribution room to direct the grain onto conveyor belts below.
Dust explosions were a real risk for grain mills. These funnels helped to filter the air in the mill.
