In case you were wondering what a day in the life of a patient was like in the later years…
A side door for the brick factory.
Workers’ lockers, strewn across Main Street, yet still out of the way.
The stone chapel sits beside the main house and received a particularly heavy dose of gothic architectural touches.
The organ and bits of glass that have lost their way. Try not to see the upside-down wooden cross dangling from the stained-glass-crown on the church’s front side. Of course, it’s to keep the loose panes from falling out onto the road in wind, but at the same time…
Windows provided the 250-some workers with fresh air and light, and helped to keep flour dust from building up in the air, helping to prevent explosions. Today, machines control air flow better without windows, so they were bricked.
The roof came down on the locker room in the basement of the poor house. This may be for employees, or perhaps there are showers around the corner–the building was too unstable to go further.
In the mine offices, a training manual for miners sits open. Here’s how you signal to the surface if you are trapped after a disaster.
Vents in the boards over the windows helps prevent mold and animals from getting too crazy inside.
