Looking through the boards of the boarded windows.
I can confirm the existence of the long-rumored Federal Rectangle Research Institute labs.
Left: A medium storage chamber with access to an interconnecting steam tunnel at ceiling height. This room also has various smashed toilets. Why? Because dead toilets–all of them–always find a home in a cave. Center: Steps go past a +-intersection, left goes deeper, right goes to utility tunnels for the brewery, forward used to go to the brewery basement… it’s now backfilled. Left from the backfill is a small hallway; see ‘Backfill Self Portrait’. Center-Right: Utility tunnels tie knots between the brewery’s demolished basement and its caves. Right: Most of the storage volume is in large chambers down this causeway.
The neon lighthouse, seen from the top of one of the silos.
I wish I knew what has become of this great one-of-a-kind sign that used to brag how many days the Clyde Iron factory has gone without a serious accident. Update: It’s hanging in one of the smaller venue spaces behind the bar.
The sign that greets visitors to the ghost town of Colmor. Nothing says ‘welcome’ like birdshot.
A close-up look at the distressed, but beautiful, staircase in the brewhouse.
Above my head while taking this picture was the seal of the Department of the Interior.
2016. A section of the third floor that has changed a lot over the years. Compare to 2006 shot.
