Morton Salt Co. Terminal Site – 1965

Friday once again…

From the caption on the back of the photo:

    “Ojibway, Ont. Slip around which the Morton Salt Co. terminal is to be built.
    Freighters shown in storage some years back; no longer there.”

The site in-between the boat and the trees was where the Ojibway steel furnaces once stood. There were obviously gone by this point in the early 1960’s.

Another interesting thing form the photo is this, the remains of a road, part of the failed city of Ojibway? An old riverfront road running from the boat slip to the salt mine?

No trace of that road exists today.

Have a good weekend everyone. See you back here Monday.
