Do you believe in ghosts? The Kalgoorlie Miner building is seriously haunted. Sure these photos are aided by the black and white function in iPhoto, but nevertheless the abandoned section at the back of the second level looks like the set of a horror movie. Complete with random chains and hooks, dust and dilapidated furniture.
Downstairs houses the ye olde and now defunct printing press which looks conveniently like a torture machine. It was in the printing press room that I saw and felt a ghost. True story. I kid you not. The place is crawling with them.
Everyone who works there has their own ghost story to tell. Whether they’ve heard strange tapping on long gone type-writers, seen the woman in the long white dress downstairs (apparently an office manager from long ago) or the editor who used to live and work in the building, you don’t truly work at the Miner until you’ve had a supernatural encounter.
The building dates back to 1896 when the paper first began production. Old = Haunted. You couldn’t pay me to go in there at night.
Have you ever seen/felt a ghostly presence?
Yup! In the Kalgoorlie Miner building no less.
