The superstructure for the sea-leg skyways serves no purpose now… the offices are bricked up, too. Why?
“GREETING FROM BEAUTIFUL GARY–WISH YOU WERE HERE!” My postcard shot.
Left: a ladder and hatch to the roof of the Temple Opera Building. Right: a false wall hides the staircase that runs right into the roof, which used to be third floor of the building. Note how the bannister is simply cut off.
From the boarded-up choir loft above the chapel, minutes after sunrise. Obviously local kids have long had their way with this landmark.
One of the staircases that connected the lab, the plant, and the offices.
Looking at the entrance of the powerplant from its lowest catwalk.
A comrade lights-up where so many workers apparently congregated to do the same.
On the left is the broken glass room that contains the controls for the cable spool, now gone, that sat in the metal shell on the right. The stairs led down to the hoisting engine itself. You can make out the slits where the cable ran up to the headframe tower through the gaping archway.
These steam powered pumps were integral to the cooling of the meat packing plant next door.
