I love this original brick archway, near the narrow gauge shop. Gorgeous!
An unplanned skylight. It’s unclear why some parts of the building had wooden roofing, while others were highly reinforced with brick.
Part of the Laundry Building with an ugly archway between rooms. Note that even this building had a nurse’s station with shatterproof windows. Laundry was done by supervised patients as part of their Occupational Therapy and the staff took no chances.
#67, one of the only lockers that is not crunched to the point it refuses to open. In the corner of the small office area.
The third floor corridor is not so welcoming, as it requires visitors to walk along the support breams without the luxury of a floor. I didn’t mind, but I can’t see the family with young children that was also exploring Noisy doing the same.
Each patient had a card of record that reported major events. Births, changes in diagnosis, and for some, death.
Graffiti by performing artists that hit the stage in the 1990s. I’m no musician, but I do not think it is being played low enough.
The front of the school overlooks the town of Birtle, Manitoba. It replaced a circa-1894 building which was a little farther down the hill.
Rubber dock boots still sits under the desk in the dock office, near keys to rusted locks and files of fired employees.
