An interesting crane in the back of the machine shop. It seems very light duty, so I am not certain what it was used for.
I love when moss grows indoors… one of the little pleasures of exploring abandonments.
There were bins with hundreds of spools in them in the basement.
Looking down the kiln line from atop the furnaces.
The stonework was done by a local handyman of sorts, who was also a guard at a nearby insane asylum. He did a great job, it seems to me.
