My favorite of the turtles in the basement mural. Mr. Fade Out.
A small stage in one of the barracks.
This mean-looking thing had a purpose, probably, but that function has been lost to decades of expansion.
Looking through the washer that is the first stop for the dredgings.
The control room for Manitoba Pool Elevator #3 was the most modern of any I saw in Thunder Bay. Apparently, 25 men were working on the day this elevator shut down.
It will be a good harvest.
A circular common room in one of the original parts of the hospital. When the asylum was especially crowded, this would be filled with patient beds, too. It’s very strange that this floor was not tiled like the other common rooms. It makes me wonder if especially dangerous patients were kept in this ward; those who could not be trusted to not extract and sharpen the ceramic tiles. Portra 160.
A set of air intakes and exhaust pipes over the buried communications and control equipment rooms.
A panorama from a basement room protected by an amphibian platoon, hand-painted by some National Guardsman from the past. I hope it gets preserved somehow…
