Catwalk crating, welded over the yard crane operator cab’s windows.
Looking across the mountain tramway from an abandoned house in Gilman.
1904 Sewer Lid in Central Hillside.
A rail maintenance building. I liked the color of the tree against the peeling red paint.
Looking through Workhouse A from the top of a silo.
Left: A medium storage chamber with access to an interconnecting steam tunnel at ceiling height. This room also has various smashed toilets. Why? Because dead toilets–all of them–always find a home in a cave. Center: Steps go past a +-intersection, left goes deeper, right goes to utility tunnels for the brewery, forward used to go to the brewery basement… it’s now backfilled. Left from the backfill is a small hallway; see ‘Backfill Self Portrait’. Center-Right: Utility tunnels tie knots between the brewery’s demolished basement and its caves. Right: Most of the storage volume is in large chambers down this causeway.
I like to think of this as a giant straw, through which the factory is slowly draining the earth, leaving nothing but reinforced concrete below…
The railworks was totally demolished.
The rails that used to go to the back of the complex are long gone, but the ties are still in the back of the parking lot.
