Call me angsty, but I like it. Found in the Auxiliary Hospital.
Standing where the Standard Oil’s boiler used to sit; the coal room is on the right, and would have been filled from trackside.
The floor IS the machine…
If you look closely, you can see the rain dropping into the building. This is the part of the chapel with the collapsed roof–not the carvings on the choir loft.
At noon, the lower skylights around the shops glow yellow-green, thanks to the flora blooming on the roof above.
Sawdust is the most classic of insulation materials.
Like many mill-style buildings of the time, the Twohy’s loading doors (in this case, the delivery wagon doors) opened to an elevator shaft. This design cut down on loading time, as long as the elevator was operational. Of course, if it was otherwise occupied, there could be no traffic through the exterior doors!
The end of the new elevator. Line of bird droppings follow the fire sprinkler pipes and wires in the room.
This sawtooth roof collapsed months later under the weight of an early snow.
