Here are a few quick shots of a recent trip to an old TB hospital mansion, and an abandoned tunnel.

Thank you. The TB hospital was right around sundown which adds some magic.

How old is the hospital?
Do you know when it was abandoned?
It looks like a lantern by the entrance.
Be interesting to find the trash dump for that site...
a cool spot

That spots is wicked! Was there a way in that stone house? Really like the sinister look of it.

It's from the turn of last century. that is a good catch. I often notice these details after I take a lot of shots. Good catch, I bet you're right given the dates. Despite my anthropology degree, I never considered the dump and I bet if you had a metal detector you'd find a few things. Hmmm.

Sure is. It's more a ruin than an abandonment. I wanted that mood for this time of year, so I'm glad I captured it. Thank you!

That tunnel looks huge, I wonder why such a tall tunnel was needed. The outdoor shots are pretty.

I find stuff I missed in person on my images. There's a lot to take in when you're there.
It struck me odd it was still sitting there

You don't need anything fancy to find trash dumps.
Winter or early spring is best after the overgrowth has died out. Look for obvious signs of earth moving or depressed areas of ground.
Look for old roads leading towards areas in the perimeter. Many times the dumps aren't far, from a couple dozen feet to a mile. Most likely isolated from used areas in use at that time.
First thing you see is usually a bottle sticking out of the ground; going after a heavy rain can be helpful. In the desert rain can surface bottles buried in the sand for decades.
Google Earth can be used to get a better overview for potential areas to look.
You never know what you'll find in those dumps. I've never left one disappointed.

Here's a bottle I found in an old long ago torn down whore house's dump from the 1940's.

Nice find there. The best item I have found is a 1890-1920's bronze bangle bracelet, but that was a long time ago. I should try my hand at this sometime. You've piqued my interest and where I live isn't much searched. I've managed to find 1700's clay pipe stems and chert tools just laying in the rock clusters of the bay.
