Since this picture was taken, the roof has totally collapsed in this area.
Inside the office was a small furnace and a collection of mechanical belts. You can see “SERVICE AT COST” and “POOL 168” in the background.
This gives a sense of the scale and the water damage of the old side (brick, rather than concrete) of the roundhouse.
2005. A skyway connecting two Which tube carried the beer? I hope it’s the big one!
A skyway 100 feet above this office crumbled one day. This is what happened when those two met. High-impact love.
Through a section of the tailings boom where mountain winds tore open the sheet metal around the conveyor, I poked my head out.
Looking up at the network of elevators at the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. Its train shed doors stand open under the void where conveyors should be. You can see where they used to connect on the left and right. The outside of the building is covered in racist graffiti.
Snow weight collapsed this section of McKee… the newest section. The brick buildings always outlive cheap metal ones.
