Below the historic National Guard Armory. A porcelain basin in the locker room is detached, but shows excellent patina. I hope when the machine shop is repurposed that this can be saved. One of the storage bunkers was cracked open. I wonder how effective this heavy door would actually be… I expect, not very. An original, minimally remodeled bathroom above the cafeteria reminds us what the whole complex once looked like. “Place Tripod Here” my friends would say. But for me, it’s the money shot.
