Scrap metal Recycling, Thunder Bay


Scrap metal recycling in Thunder Bay, Ontario.  Came across this on a recent road trip and the bonus was it was wide open next to a road.  No trespassing or fence climbing required, which I try to avoid of course.

Abandoned Grain Elevator, Thunder Bay, Ontario


An abandoned Grain Elevator, on the Lake Superior port city of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.  There are quit a few of these old derelict structures in Thunder Bay this one was abandoned 18 years ago according to a local I ran across while photographing it.  Perfect for those who are fascinated with this type of photography.  But extremely dangerous structures both in a physical sense and likely a real health hazard.   The cost of demolition or re-development make these large structures a serious concern in smaller cities like Thunder Bay.  Initial thoughts of filming an apocalyptic movie come to mind, but I’m sure insurance and safety concerns would likely be out of the question unless viewed from distance.
