What the builders done - Gartloch Lunatic Asylum
Whats left of the once extremely gorgous cut sandstone buildings of the Gartloch Lunatic asylum, a few scant buildings and the front block. Mostly stripped of their fittings and the main hall compeltly robbed of its water tight'ness. A few winters back the gable end collapsed (due to water & frost ingress AFAIK due to lack of care by the developers), rubble collapsed into th main hall, termanally wounding it, and also into the residents carpark below. Nice when developers finish a job isn't…

A derelict mind will see the beauty?
This is the only graffiti that I saw on the walls. It was very strange - what is a derelict mind? Kind of epitomises the work of a photographer. Addington Children's Hospital - Durban, KZN, South Africa

HISTORY Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
The sensitively-named Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum opened for business in 1864, the largest hand-cut stone masonry building in North America, possibly second in the world after the Kremlin. It was designed following the Kirkbride plan to house 250 lost souls, and reached its peak in the 1950's with 2,400 inmates--err--patients. Changes in attitudes forced its closure in 1994, devastating the local economy of Weston, West Virginia but it is now open for tours. Photo by Jeff Milsteen.
