A familiar scene in Control Tower B, though the microphone has not been used for years.
One of the four fire alarm panels in the power station.
It seems that the sawdust would be shot into a dust collector above the powerplant and burned.
Don’t let Mitchell Engine House run out of steam…

The Dock 5 sign at track level. Probably as an aid to sailors reboarding their vessels.
The most patriotic wallpaper I’ve seen.
The cladding on the 1926 elevator is beginning to submit to the high velocity prairie winds.
One of my favorite signs, informing workers about to descend into the open-top grain bins about basic procedures. This was in ADM-Annex 1 (connected to the cleaning house via skyway), so it will never be seen again, unless the sign lands luckily when the elevator is demolished.
