Broken dishes and rotten burlap, mixed with the general trash left behind after the roof collapsed on the poor house.
The remains of the surgical suite.
Cobbled walkways followed the assembly lines.
A broken-down wooden grain chute.

The old men’s ward is an example of what the hospital resembled before part of the complex was modernized. Small rooms, light switches outside the door, small observation windows set into heavy wood. If you ask me, though, the tile work across the floors is the most spectacular.
The floor in this building (now demolished) was very rotten. This picture was taken through a window from very firm ground.
The only way to get to the second floor–since demolition crews punched-out the staircases and ladders leading upwards–was to climb this elevator shaft. In the lower-left corner is a blower for the foundry furnaces.
Rubber dock boots still sits under the desk in the dock office, near keys to rusted locks and files of fired employees.
