The Osborn Block (front) and the Twohy (rear) at sunset. In the distance, you can almost make out Globe Elevators. One of my favorite photos of 2013.
Every timber pillar was numbered for maintenance purposes.
After a religious conversion from actors to projectors, a rebranding was in order.
One of the storage bunkers was cracked open. I wonder how effective this heavy door would actually be… I expect, not very.
The control room for Manitoba Pool Elevator #3 was the most modern of any I saw in Thunder Bay. Apparently, 25 men were working on the day this elevator shut down.
The view from the larry, looking out at the overgrowing coke oven top. Papers listed the order of the charges for each oven, noting the sticky doors and persistent leaks. Emergency respirators and rescue gear was stored close, as long exposure to emissions from the rusty hatches could make worker pass out on the top of the ovens.
The most derelict of the old bonded warehouses. Note the barrel elevator on the side of it!
Winter skies over Allouez Bay. From a distance, it looks almost fragile.
