Looking from the ‘crack’ that shows a collapsed tunnel into the dry house, in the direction miners returning home would walk. Note smoke lines above door.
For reasons unknown, this building’s concrete was designed a little thinly. It reminds me of a Chicago, IL building constructed during WWI when concrete and steel were strictly rationed and many buildings went up with insufficient superstructures. I do not have a build date for this one yet.
In the bottom of a creek, an antique children’s wheelchair is buried in grass, where someone threw it. Wooden leg braces suggest this dates to the 1950s.
Looking out of the wavy stock shop.
Someone had helped themselves to one of the safety posters before my visit.
A high-ceilinged room where kegs would be delivered for cleaning, before they were refilled with fresh booze.
Pocket door and light switches in the upper control room, at the top of the spiral staircase.
Footprints of houses past; tailings of mines past.
