Looking out the finishing end of the sintering plant at a network of torched-off catwalks through a maze of rust and asbestos. Paradise.
The control room floats above the top of the dock atop a spiral staircase.
Offices above the labs. Note all the air handling equipment. I love the utilitarian design.
Kat’s pretty cool.
The smokestack for the sintering plant included a big blower room, to launch the fumes into the atmosphere and away from the town. What could go wrong?
A late look at the brewhouse, long after the stainless steel tanks were scrapped.
A circular common room in one of the original parts of the hospital. When the asylum was especially crowded, this would be filled with patient beds, too. It’s very strange that this floor was not tiled like the other common rooms. It makes me wonder if especially dangerous patients were kept in this ward; those who could not be trusted to not extract and sharpen the ceramic tiles. Portra 160.
Before it was demolished, there was one good staircase the led to the middle of the dock. Trees grew from it.
I love this original brick archway, near the narrow gauge shop. Gorgeous!
