A typical Chateau wall. Kodak Tri-X 400 in Leica M7.
Frontier Gas is a former (?) gas station chain. Chain O’ mines reused a scrapped sign to mark their mill. Under the paint you can barely make out: GLORY HOLE GOLD MILL.
The old truck scale sits in the middle of what was Nettleton Avenue Slip.
I couldn’t help but include this ghost sign for a demolished motel…
The shaft house, where hydraulic steel doors allowed or denied entry into the mine shaft. Overhead is a light and alarm. If it sounds, the mine is being evacuated, and you best not go in and best stay the hell out of the way. Locals dump tires here, now.
Between the gauges for the power plant boilers and the steam pump flywheels.
The top floor of the Dominion Elevator. Acros 100 on 120.
The Port Arthur elevator row, as seen from the edge of Fort William.
As photographed from a cement piling for Slip #3 poured in 1935, disconnected from land by erosion. How do I know the date? A pair of steamship engineers carved their initials and ranks into the wet cement!
