To the right is the spiral staircase. This building had a definite “floor problem”.
Looking up the grand stair at the second floor.
A tunnel between the outside gate and the courtyard shared by the barracks.
A skyway 100 feet above this office crumbled one day. This is what happened when those two met. High-impact love.
Lessons from the day.
A typical narrow hallway at Birtle.
Perhaps this office was for a film studio or music producer.

This is one of my favorite doorways (yes, I have favorites) for a few reasons: 1.) You can see how the once-arched door has been squared-off for rectangular doors to fit; 2.) you can see one complete historic door and one ruined door, and the chain that used to hold them together before someone kicked-out the security, and; 3.) I like the texture of the bricks and design of the radiators in the room beyond–the blacksmith shop. Just do.
