The alley-mounted fire escape is long gone, but lamps over the bricked-up windows and a dark outline show how it zig zagged.

A floating spiral staircase, one of two, that link the foyer with the lounge and balcony level. Now the balcony level is a small second stage. A panoramic view of Split Rock LIghthouse wraps around the bannisters.
The first floor of the Industrial Loft building.
In the background you can see the crane, which would in the weeks to follow bring all you see here to the ground.
Left: a ladder and hatch to the roof of the Temple Opera Building. Right: a false wall hides the staircase that runs right into the roof, which used to be third floor of the building. Note how the bannister is simply cut off.
