Someone had helped themselves to one of the safety posters before my visit.
One of the few man-sized exterior doors, seemingly with an original frame. Classic arching and beautiful textures–every inch of wall had me drooling. If this engine house was in a metropolitan area, it would have been turned into a $10 million white collar office suite ten years ago.
Just outside of the blast furnace is a series of platforms and catwalks to bring workers to the stoves.
The hiking around Central City is beautiful and full of history. Just get a proper topo map!
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
The main floor of the hospital was crammed with furniture.
A nice view of the aurora borealis (“Northern Lights”) strong enough to outshine the industrial lighting at the power plant. The lights in the foreground direct ships discharging coal for the station.
In the corner of most of the factory floors, freight elevators flanked restrooms to leave more central space for machines and their masters.
A late look at the brewhouse, long after the stainless steel tanks were scrapped.
