Behind the main shaft is this familiar industrial sight… a running count of days since the last injury.
My favorite shot of the 17-story Art Deco office tower attached to the train station.
Looking through the center of a scrapped generator, its copper long scrapped.
Levers and indicators to control and track the path of mine cars moving up and down the mine shaft. Note the mine depth indicators would trace paper… this is because the steel cables stretch out over time, so the line length changes with the years.
Between the gauges for the power plant boilers and the steam pump flywheels.
One of the large barracks. All of them are overgrown like this.
Some of the doors had sliding plastic windows, but most of the older ward doors simply had these peep holes drilled through them. The inside was always marked and worn more than the outside.

Looking through the washer that is the first stop for the dredgings.
