Cliff Drive Ruins Dos

In my first "ruins" post ( I showed images of structural remains at the foot of Gooseneck (below the Museum along Cliff Drive). This post shows ruins along Paseo just south of Gate 1 to Cliff Drive not far from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences.. Above old brick foundation...
Above and below, stone walls.

Above and below inside the old walls. According to an old Sanborn map this building was a brick foundry....

Above, old doorway.
These photos were taken on a warm day in January 1998. Shot with an F4 on T-Max 400.... not my favorite film. For you old timers my favorite film was Panatomic-X... Slow as molasses... but beautiful, detailed images... perfect for studio work too. Kodak discontinued it in favor of T-Max 100 which was the beginning of the end for Kodak as far as I'm concerned.
Above is Hyper with daughter Kelly, then aged 9... for scale.... not far from these ruins are piles of very interesting and ornate rubble... Kelly sits atop a column remnant below...

Above Kelly and friend, Brad, a fellow bluff explorer.

Whatever this used to be it was rather grand.

Another set of remains above.
