The turned rail was to prevent runaway cars from going over the end of the dock and into the lake.
A typical hallway in the rocket assembly line.
A corner of the addition is lined with glass cabinets, formerly filled with beds.
A shuttered house at the end of the block doesn’t even have boards on it anymore.

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.
