Graffiti on the Blacksmith’s Door-(C)SUSBTREET.org
The doorframes become more askew every year as the buildings slip downward into the gulch at different rates. This seems to be the part of the mine ruins where transients leave their marks. The graffiti dated back to the 1970s, at least.
The bottom of the elevator which seemed too modern for the building. The top of the elevator opens into open air, as the second floor has long since collapsed.
A lime auger and massive feet of the lime hopper.
The guard shack protecting the Nike launch pad.
The snowflake (?) patterns were hand-laid throughout the hospital. It is possible some or all of these tiles were laid by patients, as it is on record that they were used for simple tasks in the name of occupational therapy.
After climbing the elevator shaft to the illusive second level, a new pallet of colors were revealed.
An employee lunchroom with every door and window covered in vented steel.
Worm in the path of raw ore where it would be dumped from rock cars into the silo below.
When I first visited the chapel, it had a projection TV, two organs, Bibles, and more. Now these are mostly ruined, except for the tapestries, which have somehow survived.
