2005. Looking at the brewhouse from the top of the staircase the goes to the tunnels.
The hospital is so self art deco that it seems like a film set!
Between the catwalks of Furnace 6, the molted ore would flow through the chute.
The alley-mounted fire escape is long gone, but lamps over the bricked-up windows and a dark outline show how it zig zagged.
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”.
To the right is the spiral staircase. This building had a definite “floor problem”.
The top floor of the apartment seemed so empty without the furniture that once adorned it. Instead, my eyes were drawn to the worn paths in the floor between the rooms.
The office stairs. Part of Herb’s morning walk.
This spiral staircase isn’t doing Lemp much good–maybe they’ll let me have it! I do love, though, that there is a door going to it–without walls–and it ascends to a second floor that doesn’t exactly exist anymore.
