Looking up at the most conspicuous graffiti in the city on ADM #4.
This is my favorite wallpaper in the whole hotel.
It is unclear when the ‘Superior Warehouse Company’ sign was put up, but it was likely around 1916-1917, when maps indicate it served as a dry goods warehouse, operated by Twohy-Eimon Mercantile Company. The Sivertson sign was likely added in the mid-1980s. In this image I tried to preserve the colors the bricks turn at sunset.
An original stencil-brushed sign.
Only two machines sit on the rails in the roundhouse, both oil cars. It’s not clear whether there’s anything inside either, but they have to have been placed here before 1970, when the turntable outside these numbered doors was removed.
A typical large mine tunnel. You can just make out the narrow gauge rail.
The end of one of the scrapped turbines. Judging by the aborted attempt at cutting it in half, the scrappers had some trouble with this one.
The laundry building, where many of the tunnels came to an end. It looks very East Coast industrial to me.
Much of the mill is wooden–even the larger chutes.
