Bits and things in a pile in the corner of the smelter, the unsold chunks of industrial history that didn’t sell at an on-site auction before my visit.
…a better view of the huge tailings boom stretching outside of the tailings pond.
Park Insurance Agency is no longer in business, nor would you be able to dial that phone number.
When I first saw Ogilvie’s from the ground, I promised myself to look back when i found my way into this little pitched outcropping which seemed to have the best view of Thunder Bay I could imagine. It turns out, though, that there is no floor in that section; it is just extended machine access! Oh well. Mount McKay in the background in the last light.
The first step of the filtering process is being spun through this tube.
The dredge is divided into four levels. The top level has controls for the tailings boom and, when it was there, the bucket excavator.
The control room for the whole of the plant. Sinterband here means one of the sintering lines. Temperatures, gasses, mixtures, speeds, and so on were centrally controlled here.
Jet Lowe is my inspiration.
Looking out of the “back door”, where equipment could be lifted into the factory with a crane. The bottom of the coal conveyor can be seen outside.
