I love this original brick archway, near the narrow gauge shop. Gorgeous!
2015. Water damage hastens the decay of the annex and its stage. Every time I visit this room, the chairs are in different places. Kodak Portra 400 in a Voigtlander Bessa.
The side of Stelco and its scrubber-stacks. This is demolished now.
A comrade lights-up where so many workers apparently congregated to do the same.
The side of the church, taken from a grungy sidewalk.
The substation has definite structural issues. Pictured is the sidewalk that connected the plant to the company housing.
Standing where the Standard Oil’s boiler used to sit; the coal room is on the right, and would have been filled from trackside.
This is a room where the actual explosive elements were mixed. In the event of an accident, this glass wall would give way before the concrete and thus direct the flames and shockwave away from the rest of the building. In other words, the glass is not just to get a lot of wonderful natural light into the building.
I love these heavy rolling doors in the old tobacco processing building.
