As my friend Jonathan would say, “on a human scale.”
A quick vertical panorama taken on my back at the sweet spot of a great summer sunset. On the skylight is the torch-cut catwalk that used to link the outside of the smokestacks that vented the cupolas.
An observation room, possibly for children, has drapes around a 2-way mirror. You know, to dress up the fact that someone could be watching anonymously on the other side.
On the Turbine Room floor, one old steam pump still remains, ready to pressurize steam pipes with the hot stuff throughout the car shops and boilers.
A staircase threads between the top floor and the sluices, which are in the middle of the dredge-mill.
The topmost roof of the hospital is covered in antennae and includes a star that faced the rest of the complex, now demolished.
The old offices for the Oberon Elevator are defunct, but seem to be holding up to the brutal prairie snows and winds. Medium Format.
The end of the new elevator. Line of bird droppings follow the fire sprinkler pipes and wires in the room.
A better view of the belt system that drives all the machinery in the plant.
