Thanks Joe, love old buildings. There are some nice images of some incredible workmanship in this site, as a builder, I love that sort of thing, so much craftsmanship has been lost. It is all Styrofoam now :frown:

It's funny how once beautiful buildings take on a creepy sinister look once they're abandoned.

Great site!

I have always had a fascination for abandoned objects. They just have this mysterious allure to them.

One of my favorite websites, which I'm sure many here have seen, is http://lostamerica.com/

It gives me quite a bit of inspiration.

I just wish I lived somewhere with a bit more "Americana" to it, if you know what I mean. Abandoned golf courses just don't work as well ;)

Hey Joe

Kool site! I like going thru abandoned buildings. I've done enviromental study work on abandoned DEW line stations in the arctic. We had one job at an abandoned topiscatter radar station Called Baf 5. It was closed in 1971 and many personal photos and centerfolds were still hanging on the walls. The place had an eerie feel to it and we had to carry radios and shotguns due to roaming polar bears. Never encountered a bear but you sure notice any sounds that you didn't make. Also thanks to Deadmeat for the kool lostamerica link.

Cheers

That's cool Ted. Were you wandering around alone or in pairs?

Nice find Joe, Thanks for sharing it.
Thanx Vince. I'm actually getting ready to plan a trip to the Easternstate Pen, in Philly. My wife LOVES this stuff along with me.

Hey Joe

We usually went our seperate ways and the plan was to communicate every hour. We all had shotguns and our Inuit hunter hired as a bear gaurd had a high powered rifle. He fired off a few rounds to scare away a bear and everyone panicked since the whole place was foggy with visibility around 50 ft. Luckily we didn't shoot each other. I have several old pics on film and will try to get them scanned and posted this week.

Cheers

Ted PLEASE post them if it's not too much trouble. I'm sure everyone would love to see them, I know I would.

Thanks Joe, it was fun to look through them.
Glad you enjoyed it Gordon.
