An original, minimally remodeled bathroom above the cafeteria reminds us what the whole complex once looked like.
Tunnels interconnected all of the complex, carrying power, steam, laundry and food throughout the hospital. This is a typical causeway that would have been very busy when the hospital was operating. In some places, signs still point to defunct areas of the hospital.
Hand painted fire extinguisher notices and a long room which I strongly suspect was a pattern cutting room.
The end of the dock disappears in the fog.
A circular common room in one of the original parts of the hospital. When the asylum was especially crowded, this would be filled with patient beds, too. It’s very strange that this floor was not tiled like the other common rooms. It makes me wonder if especially dangerous patients were kept in this ward; those who could not be trusted to not extract and sharpen the ceramic tiles. Portra 160.
I don’t think we’re anywhere near maximum pressure anymore.
The stage had two pianos. Did they ever duel?
Because painted signs would not hold up in this spot–in between four ovens that were literally hot enough to melt steel inside. Solution: Cut the pipe labels into the sheet metal. Seems to have worked.
