A wide view of the poor house. Look at the smokestack and elevator shaft, which show the former roofline.
One of a few rolling workbenches to keep the thousands of pulleys, cogs, and belts working properly.
One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
Not a part of the Foundry, but the Enclosed Body Building. The rebar welded over the windows and the rust patterns with the lighting makes this geometric photos one of my favorites from the year.
A side view showing the extreme structural damage to what I believe is the Masonic Cottage. I honestly cannot unravel how some of this was done, unless the local armory is missing a 4″ canon and some cartridge shot.
This rockhouse was added below the shaft to load Gilpin Tram cars.
Look at the floor–do you see the hole? That goes down a lonnnnnng ways.
A sort of blender in a powder line building. The top vent had been removed, so leaves and light fall onto the teeth now.
The Tilston School,built in the late 1960s. In front of it is a memorial and model to the first schoolhouse. This building, however, has been turned into a kind of town dump. The classrooms are filled with mattresses and discarded tires and trash.
