‘Consumers Brewery’ set in the brewhouse staircase.
The steel awning and its elegant staircase are one of my favorite features near the old carpentry shop. The gymnasium-theater is in the background.
This is an elevator to move mine car loads of sand to the surface for cleaning and eventually glass production. Below is a flooded equipment vault. In front and behind is a loop through the larger tunnels in the mine. The horizontal braces supported electric cables for the mine carts.
The end of Dock 5 is warped and bent from a rail accident that left some ore cars swinging like a stringy wrecking ball into the end of the superstructure and accompanying stair. The stairs are still navigable, but it wasn’t recommended by the CN workers that were with me.
This part of the workhouse was sheathed in fiberglass, but now you can see its insides from a mile away.
The stairs that connect the breakwater and light station (Leica M6/Kodak Ektar).
The top of the headframe, and in a sense, the mine itself. This pulley carried the life line of the mine and the men in it.
The grand staircase with little balconies leaning over it. All the stone stairs are broken and graffiti marks every wall.
