At noon, the lower skylights around the shops glow yellow-green, thanks to the flora blooming on the roof above.
The steam plant at Nopeming is an iconic (and crooked) smokestack. Kodak Pro 400 on a Fuji GX680.
A high-voltage tunnel sheathed in concrete dips below ground near a shell packing building that now stores fireworks.
The ruins of the the Hubert Mine over the ruins of Nevadaville. Its ore was taken through the town to a mill below it.
Like many mill-style buildings of the time, the Twohy’s loading doors (in this case, the delivery wagon doors) opened to an elevator shaft. This design cut down on loading time, as long as the elevator was operational. Of course, if it was otherwise occupied, there could be no traffic through the exterior doors!
Above the offices is this little section of factory that still has strips of wood flooring. This may be where the upholstery was cut.
One of the pair of motors that powered this mine shaft. In the 1950s, this shaft was designated a rescue shaft, and was only maintained for emergencies. One reason that Cheratte built Shaft 3 nearby was because these motors and infrastructure did not have the capacity that the giant mine below called for.
The stairs that connect the breakwater and light station (Leica M6/Kodak Ektar).
90% of Brach’s looks like this. Concrete walls, mushroom pillars, and water over the floor.
