Vulcan A volcano (?) under a window. Similar Images ...based on the tags: art, art-deco, rusty, triangles, windows... I wonder what this guy is thinking, walking through the complex. The grand staircase with little balconies leaning over it. All the stone stairs are broken and graffiti marks every wall. Fluorescent lights peel back from the walls like caterpillars, rearing up and away from the glare of the sunflower-fans.

These were some of the most attractive shops of all the mines in the area. It’s no wonder Hanna Mining wanted to use them as their center of operations in the Iron River district. The arches of the Twohy building, before some of the signs and sills were painted in 2015. An insurance office. 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. Looking down Pommenicher Straße from Gaststätte Rosarius, the monstrous machine about to devour the town bites at the ground.
