Ancient cool site and great shots
Was it steam powered?
Shot #12 is what? Induction motor or bearing housing? Strange.
Coal at initial construction, then changed to natural gas in the late 30s, then back to coal in the 70s.
Close, pics 11 and 12 are whats left of the dryer fan building. pic 12 is one of two dc motors (the other is just to the left out of frame) that would connect to the two wheels in pic 11 by pulleys (you can see the part of the second just behind the first one).
I would've loved to get a wider shot of the inside but the collapsed roof doesn't make it possible, though it was so tight and cramped it might not have been possible to get a good wide shot without the roof being in the way
