Ward at the Asylum for the Insane

Finally revisited this place in the town I grew up in. I'm not entirely sure what this particular building was for but I am guessing something to do with those who were physically ill as well as mentally. Will have to ask someone I know who worked out there in the 60's if they remember it. The designated smoking zone is an older model so I'm guessing it's been out of use for a bit. I'm also not sure when it was partially burned. Worth the minimal risk!

Nice set of photos. I have one that has me kind of perplexed. #4. Quite interesting being so low to the floor. What was it used for? Autopsy? Shallow bath? No drains or water connections Hmmmmm!?!

I think it's a type of Sitz bath. I'm pretty sure there was a drain but the angle I shot from makes it invisible 😀 this was a pretty old ward so maybe they used buckets?

Nice job!

That building looks a bit beat up since the last time I was there. (8 years ago).

I went looking to see if any of the original Kirkbride was there, but sadly found it had been demolished years prior.

Be careful on that campus as it is still an active facility.

I did get caught there, moments after leaving that building and was escorted off the property.

Oh wow at least they just escorted you I've heard from friends who still live out there it's gotten tough after the incident. Although the big building is gone I used to enjoy wandering around the main section in Hs when I was placed out there for volunteer service through school (I'm positive they don't do that anymore) the buildings are still charming and nice to look at. I wish the original Kirkbride was still there but the 60's were rough on old buildings in that neighborhood ☹️ I'm plotting a visit to a couple of the others designed by him that are still standing and repurposed over the next few months.

It was awesome going to this place, even if it is beat up and pretty empty--some nice lighting from some of the windows.

Really liked your take on this place 4, 5, and 6. Reflection and Lighting in these shots are splendid!

Your composition & editing is getting better & better, my man!!! These are awesome. #3 is a winner, I’m a sucker for reflections. #6 is killer as well. You & stealth gotta keep up the good work, proving the PSW ain’t dead yet. Makes me wish I could be more active as of late.



Thanks man! Been trying to improve and use the cheap camera/lens while saving up for something better.
