Strange graffiti in a side room. Someone was having fun…
The second floor in the smaller house, which was a bit smaller than the Head Keeper’s house.
“Place Tripod Here” my friends would say. But for me, it’s the money shot. Note the painting around the inside of the skylight.
This section of the hospital recently collapsed.
It’s a straight view from the projection booth to the stage, but hell of a walk. At a fast pace, I think it would take 10 minutes to walk from this spot to the chair. Behind the curtains is a big white screen, so the theatre could be used for either stagework or moving pictures. The two projectors are set up for 3D movies right now–hence the little switch below the window–a Polaroid 3D synchronizer. Cool, huh?
In the nurses’ dormitories, beds, couches and chairs still sit. It’s unclear whether these are remnants of the homeless shelter in the 80s or the actual nurses.
Some of the internal staircases were fitted with cages that wound round down the stairs to deter suicidal patients from taking a dive.
I assume this sign used to sit near the highway that snakes around the mine and town.
