Steam pipes snake up the walls like vines, but with asbestos.
An old handcart sits next to a rotting elevator.
Much of the mill is wooden–even the larger chutes.
What looks to be a skip for repairing the dock, in the concrete steeple.
An unplanned skylight. It’s unclear why some parts of the building had wooden roofing, while others were highly reinforced with brick.
The second floor in the smaller house, which was a bit smaller than the Head Keeper’s house.
A circular common room in one of the original parts of the hospital. When the asylum was especially crowded, this would be filled with patient beds, too. It’s very strange that this floor was not tiled like the other common rooms. It makes me wonder if especially dangerous patients were kept in this ward; those who could not be trusted to not extract and sharpen the ceramic tiles. Portra 160.
The roof compromised, rain water rolls down the main stairway.
This was my first view of Harris Machinery’s property… it was strange to find what looked like a ghost town five minutes from downtown Minneapolis!
