This picture is lit by a direct lightning strike of the building. It’s impossible to describe the feeling of being in this giant open building the moment it channeled an electric explosion into the earth.
The powerhouse had two elevated tracks behind it, one for coal and one for deliveries.
From the bottom of the skyway I looked back, my eyes tracing the vines from the marsh up the smokestacks to the perfect Midwestern sky.
The gold mine is now a gravel pit.

Smashed TVs and stone foundations in a former common room in the basement.
It seems like this pipe was made to return dust to the collector in the main workhouse from the annex.
