For some time, Purina ran a feed service out of the elevator. Inside and outside were signs of its past presence.
This was a living space for the keepers during storms, when it was too dangerous to return to the houses on the point.
The two antennae are retracted–the position they would be in if the base was under attack.
Looking across the catwalk attache to the elevated control room, in charge of the train dumping part of the operation.
Kodak Tri-X 400/Leica M7. The office (first floor), laboratory (second floor) and mill behind it. Everything was clean and pristine.
From the slip where grain boats would tie for loading and unloading, the unloader juts in a modernist-architectural way that is oddly visibly satisfying. Inside that white building is the retracted boat unloader, more or less a long and sturdy conveyor attached to a joint and crane motor. There used to be four loaders that looked like simple tubes with cranes and ropes attached hanging from this side of the elevator. All that remains of those is one fixture on the white building (not visible here) and the frame of one on the elevator proper, visible in the upper-middle of this image, to the right of the unloader apparatus.
The surgical suite was flooding.
One of a few dozen steel bed frames left in the rubble of the collapsing building.
An old stoker in a power plant that was abandoned long before the mill next to it, by all indications. Sugar mills burned dry beet pulp pellets for fuel.
