This sawtooth roof collapsed months later under the weight of an early snow.
Ceiling light fixtures sit on a broken gurney.
This door used to open at river level, but it has since been built up and sealed with a steel grate. Still, the original doors (with original paint?) stand in the same place. Once they opened to the fresh air, now they are permanently sealed in the tunnels. This is the official entrance for inspecting the mine, hence fiber optic and ladder. Shortly after the plant was demolished, this entire area was resealed and alarmed.
Part of the historical hospital was walled off with glass block.
Inside this small iron clad mine is a couch and some clothes. It seems that for a short while, someone was living inside of it…
The portal facing Taconite Harbor (at a healthy distance) is mostly closed. Some kids put bullet holes in it. Shooting down a long tunnel is extremely dangerous, and you should not do it, obviously. Mamiya 6/Portra 160
The old men’s ward is an example of what the hospital resembled before part of the complex was modernized. Small rooms, light switches outside the door, small observation windows set into heavy wood. If you ask me, though, the tile work across the floors is the most spectacular.
The sidewalks are littered with rocks.
Sawdust is the most classic of insulation materials.
