An unmarred chart, printed with the facility name and ready to be sent out to command.
This was a living space for the keepers during storms, when it was too dangerous to return to the houses on the point.
At the top of the elevator was a distribution room to direct the grain onto conveyor belts below.
The wrought iron staircase for what was the Consumer’s Brewery Brew House, as indicated by very fine cast landings with the company logo. The staircase is in bad condition; someone had run a forklift or something similar into the bottom in addition to copious vandalism and water damage. Holes in the floor, like in the upper-right corner indicate where stainless steel kettles used to be before they were scrapped.
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. It’s very strange that this floor was not tiled like the other common rooms. It makes me wonder if especially dangerous patients were kept in this ward; those who could not be trusted to not extract and sharpen the ceramic tiles. Portra 160.
Looking through the an access panel at the hoist room for Shaft No. 3. The cable had long ago been scrapped, along with the motors to drive the pulleys. I still admire the workmanship on the spool’s arching metal shell.
Looking down a manlift on the ore dock side of the elevator. It’s a belt-less belt-o-vator!
In the corner of most of the factory floors, freight elevators flanked restrooms to leave more central space for machines and their masters.
These corner pilings served as bumpers… a little assurance against wind, ice, and new captains.
