Looking out from what little remains of the second floor at the poor house, which was in terrible condition. No roof and no floors. Soon to be ruins.
Sometime soon, maybe in early 2016, someone will have this view from their office or condo.
I was invited to watch the 4th of July fireworks atop the Kurth tower before the current owners bought the property. Every one of the 12 frames has dozens of fireworks–just look closely. The main display is from the Stone Arch Bridge, of course.
The Atlas D command building. As Brutalist as it gets.
A window for light and air pokes above the big arch in the hallway. Most of the interior ceilings were broad brick archways.
Harris Machinery rests under snow on the left. Two explorers enjoy the view.
Left: A medium storage chamber with access to an interconnecting steam tunnel at ceiling height. This room also has various smashed toilets. Why? Because dead toilets–all of them–always find a home in a cave. Center: Steps go past a +-intersection, left goes deeper, right goes to utility tunnels for the brewery, forward used to go to the brewery basement… it’s now backfilled. Left from the backfill is a small hallway; see ‘Backfill Self Portrait’. Center-Right: Utility tunnels tie knots between the brewery’s demolished basement and its caves. Right: Most of the storage volume is in large chambers down this causeway.
Imagine with yellow window guards are eyebrows and the open windows are the eyes. This headframe seems a bit curious.
The back of the castle is barely visible through the trees that have grown thick around the walls, making it look so much older.
