I'd never look at the structure in photo 2 and think "grain warehouse".   It clearly didn't take long for creative people to start finding bigger and better solutions than what we see in the first one here.

#6 looks like State Street Yard looking west off Robert Street.  I had not heard of teh streets listed, but that's not unusual for me..
