Zachary Taylor’s very own Scottish castle, spring-side in the Kentucky backcountry. Boarded and waiting, but in surprisingly good condition, considering the decades. I especially love the tower on the right side of the frame.
A tore-up Colorado Southern Railway sign and the majestic (in an industrial sense) Argo Mill. Go. On. The. Tour. Leica/Summilux 35/Ektar 100
Sidewalks to a boarded barracks, each making the other obsolete in the night.
It seems like this pipe was made to return dust to the collector in the main workhouse from the annex.
The bottom of the elevator in the new foundry.
Part of the Pillsbury tunnel that brought water back to the Mississippi River.
The office building was fancy compared to the utilitarian factory behind it. My favorite part was the logo crown.
The newer tunnels were fitted with these fluorescent lights, although some skylights (block glass embedded in skywalks) let in some natural light during the day.
Hales & Hunter sign, as it looks today.
It’s a straight view from the projection booth to the stage, but hell of a walk. At a fast pace, I think it would take 10 minutes to walk from this spot to the chair. Behind the curtains is a big white screen, so the theatre could be used for either stagework or moving pictures. The two projectors are set up for 3D movies right now–hence the little switch below the window–a Polaroid 3D synchronizer. Cool, huh?
