Looking out from my perch close to the Kam toward the Ogilvie head house. To the left is a newer concrete annex, probably built in the years it bore the name Saskatchewan Pool 8.
Many of the higher floors were more or less demolished–usually more. These would have been condos had ‘The Arcade’ project come to fruition. Now there are simply wide open floors punctuated only by pillars and meaningless hallways.
An emergency slide to help workers evacuate the blending house in an emergency.
A vintage X-Ray machine in the oldest section of the hospital.
In the back of the warehouse is the old incinerator, probably used to destroy kegs that could not be reused.
A switch for the yard engines, now on the edge of the property where nobody will find it.
A brewmaster’s desk leans beside a long-disused stainless steel kettle. The staircase above goes to another level of kettles, which are visibly older.
The elevator is stuck between floors.
Pillars painted red indicated firefighting supplies. Fire was a very common enemy of early rail facilities, and many roundhouses burned down because of a combination of dry wood, hot, fire-breathing machinery and countless oil-saturated surfaces.
