such craftsmanship, so much glory. just as beautiful in its state of decay as it was probably was the day it was complete. the true beauty - one can see the passion of the tradesman, artists, designers and craftsman that went into every nail hammered, every stroke of paint brushed, every piece of wood carved.

...once a lovely farmhouse, filled with life and love****now just a memory of what it used to be...

The Tulip Stairs, inside the Queen's House, Greenwich Park in London.

I want to go in these places and reclaim/repurpose these lost items so they can have life again instead of turning to dust.

Apparently this is an abandoned nursing home. This is beautiful. I wish i could have seen it in its heyday.
