Marquette Downtown Ore Dock

I'm reasonably sure Debbie--Preacher Debra--took this photo.

 

Marquette, Michigan's, Soo Line (DSS&A) dock, in 1977 (or perhaps 1978). The wooden trestle which connected the dock with the approaching tracks was removed a few years back; it was a glorious structure.

 

And a fire hazard, and an obstruction to Marquette getting on with it's life. Nonetheless, I miss it. The dock itself remains; let's hope they find something to do with it.

  

Reasonably sure, Jowo? Yup. This is from the same set as the Chief Wawatam photograph. As I said with that picture, the box is labelled Richard, but some pictures appear to be Debbie's.
