Furnace #6; its catwalk and tapway. Note the lever-operated gutter-blockers.
The Blacksmith Shop (right) was connected to the Bunk House (left) via this narrow walkway. This is likely due to the fire risk in each building. The left building had a cooking stove and furnace for heat and the right building had a small industrial furnace to repair mining equipment. A little walkway would mean that a fire on one side would be easier to fight from the other.

Wide stairs between the ground, the mine shaft, and the dry house.
Peeling paint reveals the room numbers of the past. Kodak Trix-400 on Canon T40.
