This picture shows all three areas of the substation. In the foreground is the transformer room, the tallest space. The darker room in the middle is the motor generator room. The room at the end through the door is the control room and office area.
The roof compromised, rain water rolls down the main stairway.
Outside the locker room without the sandwiches and beer… plenty of glass shards, though, if you feel like it.
This is one of the biggest warps I’ve ever found in a wooden factory floor hasn’t broken yet. When you stand on it, it make a very loud popping sound as the boards shift. The poster on the pillar near the left side of the frame advertises recreational boating, presumably to the factory workers who left this floor in the early 1980s.
Miners would sit in this room before going into the mine. The boards on the right indicated whether every single miner was “in” or “out”.

Looking down into the lunch building of an Atlas D, near the motors for the retractable roof. In this design, the roof separates to allow the missile to be erected into launch position.
A storm passes over BOMARC’s center row of launch buildings. You can clearly see the tracks on which the roof would retract for launch.
Sleeping bags mark this former courtyard as a crash pad for the local homeless.
