A portrait of the second school of McConnell, built in 1937.
One of the few doors.
This seemed to be the newest building on the property.
Looking out of the boarded windows in the Great Western Sugar office.
The third floor corridor is not so welcoming, as it requires visitors to walk along the support breams without the luxury of a floor. I didn’t mind, but I can’t see the family with young children that was also exploring Noisy doing the same.
Looking from the shaft room into the room where an electric hoist would be.
The east side of the boiler shop sported a platform with a control booth and heavy machine mounts. Note the door that replaces the lower section of stairs for explorers.
I can confirm the existence of the long-rumored Federal Rectangle Research Institute labs.
In the later years one of the mine garages was repurposed into a truck repair garage.
