Jail Cell

Perhaps this was used when the hospital was used as a detox.

Fort Liege Sign

A sign facing the city on an exterior wall–a sort of motivational poster.

Whiskey Country Sunset

While walking out I snapped this last shot of the sunset drenching the castle-top watertower (staying with the theme), right before the sun dipped below the hill across the stream from which the whiskey was distilled.

National Mine, Junk Pile

I would wager that National Mine became the dumping ground for Chain O’ Mines as the company began to fail.

Bonded Warehouse Office

This office, as seen from the power plant, administered the bonded warehouses. There used to be a few more of them, according to old maps and postcards.

Regauging House

Regauging is the process wherein barrels are opened and the whiskey is tested in various ways, especially in its alcohol content.

Bricabrac

The bricks are decaying at different rates at this corner, making it especially colorful.

Armored Booth

Catwalk crating, welded over the yard crane operator cab’s windows.

Ghetto Courtyard

Sleeping bags mark this former courtyard as a crash pad for the local homeless.
