The Blacksmith Shop (right) was connected to the Bunk House (left) via this narrow walkway. This is likely due to the fire risk in each building. The left building had a cooking stove and furnace for heat and the right building had a small industrial furnace to repair mining equipment. A little walkway would mean that a fire on one side would be easier to fight from the other.
Looking out from my perch close to the Kam toward the Ogilvie head house. To the left is a newer concrete annex, probably built in the years it bore the name Saskatchewan Pool 8.
In this old repair shop, vines fall from the rotting roof to meet mossy concrete. Even though it had been dry for days, water dripped in from the roof to make permanent puddles between workstations. It was full of color and sound and industry and nature.
A bedroom, from the basement. The Dog Days are Over.
The old mill (right) and power plant (left) with the new mill behind them.
The clock, which was sold after Amtrak dumped the building, was returned to the Waiting Room in 2005.
On the ground floor of the main factory there seems to be only one chair left.
One of a pair of poles to hold the electric lines for the streetcars entering and exiting the tunnel.
There’s no way an explorer, much less a choir, could stand here now. Since this picture was taken the roof has collapsed onto the loft.
