The stage had seen some water damage, but it can (and should) be brought back!
The flour mill’s interior is really just a system of steel and rubber tubes that crush flour over and over in the gap. This mill was never run off of water power directly, but it used to generate power using the river.
This bridge over Eagle River is beautiful.

When ‘men’ meant ‘worker’.
Shadows of the skylights form a backdrop for rust-welded machines.
What I make out to be the dining room or great hall of the castle, as seen through of the side rooms, which appeared to be a very ruined library. Teenager graffiti looks cooler in French.

The water tower no doubt made good scrap after it hit the ground.
