'Tunnel' in the Ruins

I have a fascination with tunnels. Unfortunately I live in an area that is short on appreciable underground/tunnel locations. I found the next best thing at the largely demolished Laurens Mill in Laurens SC. An underground storage room remained in an area that seems to have been the mechanical section of the building. A boiler and pressure vessels are nearby. The really amazing thing about this room is that there are still metal bits and pieces on the shelves and hanging on the walls. It makes one wonder what other things were bulldozed under in the two adjacent storage rooms. One of them did have one of the original windows, bricked over at some point in the past and now revealed in ruins of the building. Neat stuff...
