Centennial #3 and Hoist House An experimental shaft dug in the 1950s and its Hoist House. Similar Images ...based on the tags: cables, headframes, pulleys, shadows, staircases, trees... A bunk room, minus the bunks. Looking toward a void–formerly a hallway to the mineshaft–now a hole in the ground. I wonder if these windows were bricked after the 1950 explosion with the hopes that, if another silos blew, the people in this office would be better protected. Perhaps this office was for a film studio or music producer. Looking down Pommenicher Straße from Gaststätte Rosarius, the monstrous machine about to devour the town bites at the ground. David Aho, the owner of Mitchell Engine House, poses beside the boiler. The old truck scale sits in the middle of what was Nettleton Avenue Slip. A panorama next to a long abandoned adit. The tram has seen better days.
