These pools looked into the cribbing below the concrete.
I found a historical photo of this room showing 10-foot high machines with wires hanging by the mile from looms and schematic charts.
This is part of the oldest section of factory, one that hasn’t had a roof in a long time and all usable equipment has been extracted. The machines pictured would spin sliced beets in boiling water… it was a sealed system before someone cut holes on sides of each unit.
A pipe bracket seems to have rusted off of the ceiling.
This section of the production floor was constantly dripping. Someone had laid down giant plastic sheeting to attempt to protect the lower floors, but it hasn’t worked.
In its last years, the church had a congregation of only about 100. It opened with 1.700…
No ambiguity here… miners, check in at this office.
In the ward for the criminally insane, this door was the most-worn. Nail scratches mark the area around the peep hole, the wood is gouged everywhere from thrown chairs and hard kicks, and a ominous blood-colored stain is visible where it dripped in the second inset from the bottom. Aside from the damage, the coloring in this section was very vibrant, though it was probably little reprieve for those who had to work here.
