About a third of the roundhouse was demolished in the 1950s, but there’s a lot left.
Call me angsty, but I like it. Found in the Auxiliary Hospital.
The old movie theatre sign was sitting right inside the sealed front doors.
Demolition crews got a taste of this 5-story power plant and decided to take a month-long smoke break. Here’s the bite.
The conveyor belt prevented cranes from accessing the left side of the dock, so cranes were mounted to the gantry crane to maintain the ore chutes on the side.
A tunnel connecting the two larger caves in the hill; those that Jacob vented in the rear. The vents are still extant!
I was squatting overnight in one of the buildings and woke up with the sunrise. This is what I woke up to.
A 180-degree panorama of the first floor of the refectory. I just loved the colors; there’s something about plaster walls that retain the character of a building; they crumble when they die, which is much more graceful than drywall, which drips down into a stinking puddle that looks and smells like a blob of Elmer’s glue.
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.
