Dump One

Some of the rotting clothes were in boxes, split long ago from moisture. Others were just heaped in piles.

Operator’s Chair

The well-worn chair in one larry’s operator cab, next to an overgrown coke battery.

Broken Box

On the scale of the big machine shop, the huge piles of clothing look insignificant.

Hung Coats

The entrance to the cafeteria when I first saw it (around 2004) still had coats on the hanger. Now the walls aren’t even white anymore because water has removed all the latex paint.

Dump Two

A color study of the rotting donated clothes in the former GB&S Machine Shop.


Broken dishes and rotten burlap, mixed with the general trash left behind after the roof collapsed on the poor house.
