The elevator works on gravity… this is where a conveyor belt was to move the grain toward the main elevator to be loaded into ships.
On the left is the 1907 elevator section and its 1926 expansion is on the right. Interesting how the century-old silos seem to be faring better. Windows provided light to the underground conveyor tunnels, which were used to bring grain out of the silos by gravity.
