This is a typical view of the factory; most of it was long hallways flanked by piles of equipment and access points to maintain them.
A yellow house above the mineshaft.
A panorama next to a long abandoned adit. The tram has seen better days.
This mean-looking thing had a purpose, probably, but that function has been lost to decades of expansion.
One of the old cooperage buildings is largely unchanged from when it was built. The raised section of the building houses a crane.
A morning shower made the plant’s metal siding shake… probably nothing, though, compared to when the furnaces were blasting. The objects on the ground are molten ore containers.
A chalkboard halfway to the headhouse is untouched since the mill closed. It still has the cheat sheets!
Workers in the basement tunnels had to communicate with the workhouse operators 100 feet above and vice versa. Alarms and bells were installed to signal trouble over the sound of the elevator machinery.
A little catwalk gives access to the most important gauges in the building. Behind them are huge vents and fans. I bet it got steamy in here.
