Can you hear the ship’s horn through this picture?
Looking from abandoned to active. The end of Dock 6 often has a crane and some shacks on it, as the chutes aren’t used anymore. Instead, conveyors are installed on the land-side of the dock that fill docked vessels, making the end of the dock little more than a breakwater and a place to park repair and recovery equipment.
There were a few large houses on the Old Crow property where employees would live. The glen had little housing.
Platforms and abandoned outbuildings, as seen in 2005.
This picture gives you the idea of how the boat-loading control rooms are set up; they lean over the dock and Lake Superior to be able to see down into the holds of the boats… important, considering how quickly it loaded the boats! An uneven load could put stress on the hull of a laker, increasing the risk it will break and sink.
One of the clusters of elevators. Doors would open on both sides so that vehicles could be moved through them if necessary. There is only one set of stairs in the whole building.
The elevator tower seems to have been built with expansion of the dock in mind.
I like this picture because it shows some of the only unbroken windows at Packard.
