From the catwalks below the hoisting motor in Shaft No. 1.
On the left is the broken glass room that contains the controls for the cable spool, now gone, that sat in the metal shell on the right. The stairs led down to the hoisting engine itself. You can make out the slits where the cable ran up to the headframe tower through the gaping archway.
This ward was the last occupied place in the hospital. It was used as a chemical dependency (drug and alcohol) inpatient program. It seems that they were allowed to paint the walls before they abandoned it… I go back and forth, thinking it is a shame and thinking it is a little cool.
Pipes to channel nitrose (think nitro glycerine) infused acid through the building.
The winch that hauled the sea leg, a decide to unload grain from waiting boats and barges.
The end of the new elevator. Line of bird droppings follow the fire sprinkler pipes and wires in the room.
One of the pair of motors that powered this mine shaft. In the 1950s, this shaft was designated a rescue shaft, and was only maintained for emergencies. One reason that Cheratte built Shaft 3 nearby was because these motors and infrastructure did not have the capacity that the giant mine below called for.
The main floor of the hospital was crammed with furniture.
