Urban Decay – The School Book Depository

without comments

The combination of an upset stomach and trying to put the finishing touches to a course is a bit tricky (at least I should not even attempt to be more than 10 metres away from a toilet today) – in short, perfect conditions for a bit of procrastination. And with this, we move to the US.

Sweet Juniper has this introduction to the remains of the Detroit Public Schools Book Depository which was abandoned sometime during the early 1980 and still, incredibly, standing as a ruin more than twenty years on. Straight out of some David Lynch film.

The Flickr photo-set with all of the haunting images is here.

And just to ruin your mood completely, here’s Michigan Central Station.
