Note the large belt pulley in the center of the frame. Follow the axel it’s on and you’ll see several belts still attached to the drive, which was originally steam-driven.
An abandoned gatehouse bearing the name of the former factory.
A typical room in Birtle.
Gloves hang in the basement of the former quality assurance labs.
One of my favorite visual feature of grain elevators, especially big ones, is how they repeat.
Heavy industrial looks good in cotton candy pink.
Looking toward a void–formerly a hallway to the mineshaft–now a hole in the ground.
Wintertime is quiet, except for the planes overhead.
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.
