Gauges In the grungy control room, I found a little slice that was never graffitied. Similar Images ...based on the tags: gauges, grimy, numbers, orange, rusty... There were bins with hundreds of spools in them in the basement. A line of huge machines wait to be used as parts under a long-disused belt drive. A dead work truck rusts near an outbuilding. Everything is marked with a code. Modernity. An impressive message for graffiti in a Detroit warehouse, but then again look at these steam pumps. Over-built and under-appreciated. The chief engineer had many phones. It’s my guess one connects to the pilot house and the other connects to the emergency steerage station that’s mid-deck.

Two counterweighted elevators moved men between the surface, mine, and underground mill.
