A warped mirror in the rock crusher at the rear of the complex.
In the corner of the foundry, this lunchroom was literally collapsing under one small leak in the roof. Tile by tile the water ate away the ceiling. Note the clock.
It was a strange choice, although I appreciate it, for the firm reusing the shops to brick up the doorways while leaving the doors.
Looking down a manlift on the ore dock side of the elevator. It’s a belt-less belt-o-vator!
Drawn in fresh concrete about 50 years before I took this picture, and only 2 years after this elevator blew up…
The generator room was state of the art when it was installed, allowing the complex to use motors and electric lighting ahead of its competitors.
Pozo Mine, the most menacing mine building I’ve ever seen. Black and white film, shot with the Fuji GX680, a beast of a camera.
Perhaps this office was for a film studio or music producer.
This ornamental stair is cast iron and used to connect all floors of the Administration building. Now it connects the first and second floor, then the third and fourth floors, with a strange cinder block and drywall barrier separating the new and old sections of the building. Note the insulation on the floor to seal heat into the lower floors that were used as offices until the hospital closed. On the corners of the staircase are lions, on the corners of the suspended section of stair are down-hanging pineapples. Set in the stairs themselves are shield motifs with slate tops.
