Spare parts ready for this building’s reactivation.
This ornamental stair is cast iron and used to connect all floors of the Administration building. Now it connects the first and second floor, then the third and fourth floors, with a strange cinder block and drywall barrier separating the new and old sections of the building. Note the insulation on the floor to seal heat into the lower floors that were used as offices until the hospital closed. On the corners of the staircase are lions, on the corners of the suspended section of stair are down-hanging pineapples. Set in the stairs themselves are shield motifs with slate tops.
Looking across the catwalk behind the ore chutes, when they were up, and at the top of the ore chutes during loading.
The power gauge showed… broken.
Inside the main entrance is a whiteboard and mirror, then it branches into discrete spaces.
At sunset the light skips from puddle to stagnant puddle across the whole foundry room, playing with the classic sawtooth roof with half-hearted shadows.
It’s a small world… look at it.
Looking out of a door to nowhere at the fiery sky above.
I like this picture because it shows some of the only unbroken windows at Packard.
