Hartline Difference Of Decades
First photo is dated 12-4-59.
Second photo is from 2-11-2018.
Note the old jack house on this end of the elevators is gone, replaced by the big steel tanks. The silvery colored one in the old photo is still standing, though it has had a new elevator installed. It seems that the end elevators are also still in place.
In the early photo, there were about 3 or 4 different owners of the elevators. Now there are two, which will be officially merged into one on 4-1-2018.
