Inside the power station at the Huber Coal Breaker, Ashley, Pennsylvania


The abandoned Huber Breaker is a magnificent cathedral of coal. It has a vast and imposing structure coated in tar to provide resistance to rust, but it also sucks up light like a black hole. The effect is startling. It stands out starkly against the rolling countryside like a giant anthracite tombstone for generations of Pennsylvania coal miners.  A few more shots from my brief visit are here:!i=1668070348&k=VWKv5k8
