Looking past the Osborn along the side of the Hughitt Slip, where there have always been grain elevators for more than 100 years.
I assume this sign used to sit near the highway that snakes around the mine and town.
ZC was sure proud of his castle!
I don’t think we’re anywhere near maximum pressure anymore.
This building seemed like a pump house or compressor house. It was full of empty concrete mounts.
At sunrise the fog rose near the solvent recovery line. You can barely read the “XXX” warning.
Every elevator has sets of these conveyor switches. Grain comes down through the top chute and the bottom chute rotates to move the flow onto various belts around the plant by gravity. The cross belt is another switch and the bridge belt brings the flow to the other half of the elevator.
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.
Unintentional art comes in the form of a beet juice slurry baffle.
