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.
Offices above the labs. Note all the air handling equipment. I love the utilitarian design.
For some time, tugboats were stored next to the elevator.
The beacon was installed in 1938 and removed in the mid-2000s.
The sliding nuclear-blast-hardened door that would shield the missile during an attack.
Barrels were prepared across the street, then moved across the road with a special conveyor, seen crashed here. This is down the road from Old Taylor, and was probably a part of the Old Crow operation.
Looking across the catwalk attache to the elevated control room, in charge of the train dumping part of the operation.
I’ll remember the neon glow fondly.
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.
