An abandoned ranch on the east side of the tracks. This was not the Colmor Cutoff they were waiting for.
Behind the evaporators are heavy access hatches to inspect the steam pipes within.
In this section of the Men’s Ward, sealed by brick from lower floors, the room doors had messages painted in their inside–some motivational, some not. I would be interested to hear if anyone knows the backstory of this section. Lighting is natural; it was just after sunset.
A high-ceilinged room where kegs would be delivered for cleaning, before they were refilled with fresh booze.
One of the prettier Humphry Manlifts in Minneapolis, in my opinion.
90% of Brach’s looks like this. Concrete walls, mushroom pillars, and water over the floor.
Pipe fittings in little drawers, lit by tea lights.
Funny how sensitive modern English speakers have become to gendered language. I doubt the workers here–almost all female–were offended by this posting for ‘Workmen’s Compensation’.
In the ward for the criminally insane, this door was the most-worn. Nail scratches mark the area around the peep hole, the wood is gouged everywhere from thrown chairs and hard kicks, and a ominous blood-colored stain is visible where it dripped in the second inset from the bottom. Aside from the damage, the coloring in this section was very vibrant, though it was probably little reprieve for those who had to work here.
