Shadows of the rusty trestle and cold control towers on the Barker. Workers are preparing to swing over the sides of the boat to help secure her to the Minnesota Power dock.
It’s a straight view from the projection booth to the stage, but hell of a walk. At a fast pace, I think it would take 10 minutes to walk from this spot to the chair. Behind the curtains is a big white screen, so the theatre could be used for either stagework or moving pictures. The two projectors are set up for 3D movies right now–hence the little switch below the window–a Polaroid 3D synchronizer. Cool, huh?
I love the texture of the rust through the decaying yellow paint.
Spare parts ready for this building’s reactivation.
An alarm panel in the powerpplant, now demolished.
Looking out at the town water tower (which I love) from the sugar mill (which I also love).
An original, minimally remodeled bathroom above the cafeteria reminds us what the whole complex once looked like.
The interior of one of the curved corridors that connect two wards. Note the original floor’s hand-laid tile pattern. Portra 160.
One of the few windows that escaped steel plating the last time the hospital was sealed tight to let nature roam within.
