Looking across the spired rooftop of the Kirkbride building. In the foreground is a fire chute that contains a metal spiral slide designed to evacuate patients in case of a fire. Note the ironwork on the chimney.
Sluice tables stretch into the darkness.

A shallow creek traces Illinois Gulch toward the Chain O’ Mines mill. Ball mills are laid out in the sun.
One of Martinsdale’s defunct businesses perpendicular to the depot. Recall that Martinsdale is a T-town.
The gulls wait to eat the next load of spilled grain. Arista 100.
Inside the main entrance is a whiteboard and mirror, then it branches into discrete spaces.
Since this picture was taken, the roof has totally collapsed in this area.
