One of the pair of motors that powered this mine shaft. In the 1950s, this shaft was designated a rescue shaft, and was only maintained for emergencies. One reason that Cheratte built Shaft 3 nearby was because these motors and infrastructure did not have the capacity that the giant mine below called for.
A screened water wheel, presumably for rotating the dredge once it lowered its “foot” to pivot in place.
Dust explosions were a real risk for grain mills. These funnels helped to filter the air in the mill.
I found a historical photo of this room showing 10-foot high machines with wires hanging by the mile from looms and schematic charts.
Grimy windows and the other half of the complex trade interests and stares.
Scrappers infamously gutted the factory, but this one green conduit going from the sintering floor all the way to ground level seems to have been spared.
A typical room in the barracks, reinforced from mortars and light shelling, possibly.
Water damage dissolved the ceiling into sludge. Pillars remain, as do the plastic light covers, now on the floor.
A walk-up service window on the side of an administration building of some sort. I have a feeling the buildings were color coded.
