Looking through a launcher doorway at an outbuilding… the fire truck garage, if I recall correctly. Fomapan medium format in Pentax 67.
One of a few rolling workbenches to keep the thousands of pulleys, cogs, and belts working properly.
What I make out to be the dining room or great hall of the castle, as seen through of the side rooms, which appeared to be a very ruined library. Teenager graffiti looks cooler in French.
The main buildings were mostly interconnected and in good condition. The dry air helps to preserve the wooden structures.

Water turned the taconite powder into a rusty, slippery paste… everywhere the water pooled up, doubling the beauty from certain special angles.
From the street, it’s clear that almost every window and door had boards over it, but not every building had a roof. Silly priorities.
A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.
