• A photograph of the Arctic Coal Company's warehouse, coal storage, and powerhouse area from near the end of the company'd dock. The rail line at the center of the photograph connected the dock with Longyear City. The rail lines to the right connected the dock with the coal stockpile, seen in the background. The company's powerhouse is the multi-section structure with three smoke stacks in the center of the photograph. The small house to the left was a small winch-house, powered by the powerhouse, which pulled rail cars up an incline at the end of the dock (not visible here).
