The trees were so overgrown, it was difficult to see the hotel at all from the road.
A vintage X-Ray machine in the oldest section of the hospital.
The last of four radar domes on the base.
Connecting the Administration building’s tower and top floors is this beautiful cast iron staircase. It was probably designed to help service the clock originally planned to be set in the tower, but when the hospital went over budget the state cancelled the timepiece. Now we are left with a gorgeous stair with little or no real purpose–not that I’m complaining. I am a long-admitted spiral staircase fetishist.
Note the large belt pulley in the center of the frame. Follow the axel it’s on and you’ll see several belts still attached to the drive, which was originally steam-driven.
The front door to the auditorium.
A typical room in Birtle.
The secret sweet-yet-salty center of the nameless factoryscape. Home base, tuned to rule the AC and turn out Product X at record rates, I’m sure.
A screened water wheel, presumably for rotating the dredge once it lowered its “foot” to pivot in place.
