2013. A perfect summer day meets a beautiful old roundhouse on the edge of town.
Tunnels interconnected all of the complex, carrying power, steam, laundry and food throughout the hospital. This is a typical causeway that would have been very busy when the hospital was operating. In some places, signs still point to defunct areas of the hospital.
Looking from rooftop to rooftop at the Temple Opera Block and Orpheum/NorShor. The tall section in the rear is the theatre house.
Wind-battered catwalk lights between the shaft house and headframe/rockhouse building.
Harsh rail yard lighting throws shadows of broken windows against the line of boilers.
The gold mine is now a gravel pit.
A white star marks the landing between the Keeper’s Quarters (Second Floor) and the radiobeacon and furnace rooms (First Floor).
Ducking the steam lines overhead between the mixers and compressors, a water tower says “good morning,” right past the slack power lines. This is the sleepy uptown of the war city.
Above the offices is this little section of factory that still has strips of wood flooring. This may be where the upholstery was cut.
