The side of the church, taken from a grungy sidewalk.
Almost all of the doors and windows on the ground floor have been boarded, leaving the ground level very dark.
Looking across the spired rooftop of the Kirkbride building. In the foreground is a fire chute that contains a metal spiral slide designed to evacuate patients in case of a fire. Note the ironwork on the chimney.
Looking out from a hallway on the third floor where a ceiling and roof should be. I could not stand in the room, as the floor had collapsed into the basement, but I could put my camera out at arm’s length and fire a few pictures upward, which is how I came away with this image!
Looking through a secure ward door at the destroyed rooms beyond.
This old ward, not a victim of remodeling, still has metal screens over the open windows of the doors. It should be obvious why glass were not used.
Jef throws open the back door of an alley for the trailing photographers and historians.
In the corner of most of the factory floors, freight elevators flanked restrooms to leave more central space for machines and their masters.
Off the beaten path is this old LTV sign. Now it points to a ghost town and dead dock.
