A ruined platform on the railyard platform side of the warehouse.
Looking up the hill from the rooftop of the Temple Opera Block. The downtown casino (left) looks far closer to its original use as a Sears Roebuck department store than it does today. Behind it is the blighted Carter Hotel, one of many abandoned buildings near the former Orpheum.
A big sliding fire door opens onto a train dock.
There were three main stockhouses, two of which still exist, that are filled with tanks like these in addition to Fermentation. Each tank is the size of the city bus and few are left after the 2008-2009 scrapings.

Looking toward the old power house, right below one of its arteries.
Note the tiled floor between the bucket conveyors and an old mill.
Looking out across the elevator row from Portland Huron’s roof. Don’t you love the color of the sky?
