The top floor of the Dominion Elevator. Acros 100 on 120.
Two steel hoppers supported by counterweights and springs, which were used to weigh incoming grain loads before being deposited in the silos beneath this floor. Garner is another way to say “big measuring tank”, if you were wondering. I fell in love with all the tubes and chutes on this floor.
Capitol 6 has three annexes. It must have a massive capacity. Note the poor condition of the breakwater.
Chutes connect the bottoms of the silos to a conveyor belt.
The Peavey logo, before it rusted off and the offices were demolished.
One of my favorite visual feature of grain elevators, especially big ones, is how they repeat.
I love the texture of the rust through the decaying yellow paint.
At the end of a conveyor belt and poised over a loading station, it’s easy to image the tinny sound of chicken feed sliding across the metal. Like sand on the old-fashioned stainless steel playground slides.
