The corner of Clyde on Michigan Street looked like it had been sealed a long time.
Old boathouses near the dock.
This tunnel goes to the adit over the Eagle River Mills. I bet those carts go fast down here!
It’s a straight view from the projection booth to the stage, but hell of a walk. At a fast pace, I think it would take 10 minutes to walk from this spot to the chair. Behind the curtains is a big white screen, so the theatre could be used for either stagework or moving pictures.
