The Peavey logo, before it rusted off and the offices were demolished.
The Harrison flour mill, completed in 1897 and expanded in 1901 and 1902. The tunnel that I am standing on probably transported grain from the elevator to the mill. Medium Format.
The left cave is the largest of the three, and shows the most evidence of expansion.
This picture tells half the story about the size of half of the complex. For Port Arthur, it’s average, but this would be a fantastically large elevator if it were anywhere else!
This tree caught my eye. Note the bench swing near it. Portra 160.
