Employee lockers near the stage, Service Building.
This room on the top floor of one of the oldest buildings has seemingly not changed since it was adapted for employee use. Some sections of the hospital were adapted for staff to live in. Paying Patient Ward–where capable patients were separated from wards of the state.
I really like the way this high-ceilinged room is decaying. Well, decayed. It’s demolished now.
Part of a series I am shooting of patriotic Americana left in abandoned factories.
Judging by the bed, this room was used by employees in its later years.
One of the many small treasures hiding in the mill…
A 1960s style TV set in a sun room at the back of the poor house. The concrete room survived the roof collapse and was full of rotten children’s books and toys. Perhaps it was where donations were sorted, or perhaps it was a nursery/orphanage area.
