Looking out of a door to nowhere at the fiery sky above.
Halfway up the coal conveyor, covered in coal dust… black streaks of snot. Starting to get good.
A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.
Wagons and horses were kept in the building on the left, separate from the rest of the complex in case of fire. In the distance is the boiler house, separate for the same reason.
Mammoth Mine overlooks Central City from atop Mammoth Hill. In the distance you can make out Coeur d’Alene Mine (red), which operated from 1885 through 1940.
When I first saw Ogilvie’s from the ground, I promised myself to look back when i found my way into this little pitched outcropping which seemed to have the best view of Thunder Bay I could imagine. It turns out, though, that there is no floor in that section; it is just extended machine access! Oh well. Mount McKay in the background in the last light.
On the left is the broken glass room that contains the controls for the cable spool, now gone, that sat in the metal shell on the right. The stairs led down to the hoisting engine itself. You can make out the slits where the cable ran up to the headframe tower through the gaping archway.
A printing press in the attic of the Reception Hospital.
In the mountainside are a number of air shafts, indicating where the tunnels traced under the rocky surface.
