The wings of the church had a lot more water damage than the rest. The organ on the balcony was in decent condition when I arrived.
Kate for scale. Powder that passed the floatation level was flowed over sluice tables, another mass-based way of separating gold. I’ve never seen so many of these in one place. Though it was a hardrock mine, it worked more like a placer mine.
Counter-weighted ore cars alternately filled and emptied to feed Furnace 7. Honestly, though, the corner-mounted cranes are sexier in my opinion. Note the trees growing from the stacks.
This electric Wellman crane was added to extract coal from ships for the power plant that Erie built beside their dock. Now, with the advent of self-unloading boats, it’s been replaced by a funnel and conveyor belt.
Shadows of distant power lines are carried to the concrete by street lights.
Coming to an inspirational poster near you… what should it read? ADVENTURE AWAITS? Don’t hang posters. Go outside.
A nice view of Hamilton from the roof of the theater.
Another. Planet. Coal crushers and the coke loading line.
The many levels of catwalks make for a place where you can look from the ground floor to the roof, about 4 stories up.
