The most pointless, beautiful and nuclear-bomb-proof catwalk I’ve been on to date. It goes between two high levels in its own bottom-lit concrete capsule in the center of the tallest, thickest building. Hang on, we’re riding this one out.
Science Alert. When the sun strikes an object, that object absorbs some of the infared light in the form of heat. The heat absorbed by the old Soo dock absorbed and radiated that energy to melt off the snow from the ice around it, making it very reflective.
If you look carefully along the side of the slip alongside this image of Cargill B-2, you will see the remains of the crane stops when this was a Hannah coal dock.
Looking into the main workhouse from the skyway into the annex elevator. But who care? Look at the colors!
Though it’s a little unclear what control station controlled what function, these levers seemed to relate to some of the bigger equipment inside the dredge, such as the trommel.
Wide stairs between the ground, the mine shaft, and the dry house.
One of a few rolling workbenches to keep the thousands of pulleys, cogs, and belts working properly.
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.
