I find it so sad that so many priceless things are left behind. I would LOVE to have pictures of my ancestors-they're very hard to come by.
Norwich State Hospital. Something about the red tile/shower curtain is just creepy. Its just too normal, new looking amongst everything else crumbling around it.
Pilgrim State Hospital. Abandoned Asylum. Love the sign above the doorway. I did nursing rotations there as a student in the late 70's!
Unmarked graves at a state asylum. They were once someones child, sibling, parent, or friend. So sad.
