Just one of many arresting images from Brian Ulrich’s Dark Stores project.
Deep in the mountains of coal country lies this rusting hulk. Once the largest coal breaker in the world it could process raw coal through the entire facility in an amazing 12 minutes. Some information states it opened around 1932 and closed in either 1964 or 1978.

Showcasing an abandoned colliery:
These cages are called Kaue. It was used by the miners to put their clothes, shoes and private belongings in. They could lever the cage by a chain, and lock it. Each chain had its unique number, counting up to 4700 and more. Gives you an idea of the size of this place.
Impressive and surreal scenery. I’ve never seen anything like it before.
