An interesting crane in the back of the machine shop. It seems very light duty, so I am not certain what it was used for.
A circular common room in one of the original parts of the hospital. When the asylum was especially crowded, this would be filled with patient beds, too. It’s very strange that this floor was not tiled like the other common rooms.
