Sorry you missed it

From the lack of threads on this location, I assume that only a select few knew of it and had the chance to explore. I was lucky enough to spend 2 full weekends roaming around the place. I wouldn't say it was very photogenic but it was loads of fun to walk the halls and poke around all the nooks and crannies.

Here's what I got from the now demolished Woman's College Hospital, from back in July of 2013:

Judging by the lack of tagging, I don't think the "select few" you mention just included explorers! What the heck is that ectoplasm on the pull station? Cool shot! I keep going back to #7 though. Can't put my finger on why it is so appealing, but perhaps those are the best pics. And #9 of course, but totally for the impressive colour contrast.

Indeed, looks like the kind of place that would take 2 weekends to fully enjoy.

#13 looks awfully claustrophobic.... did the sides of that spiral open up after you went down a bit, or was it a closed tube inside?

Thanks Ground State! The only tagging was patients that were allowed to write on the walls and given markers or paint by the hospital staff. Lots of great inspirational notes and cool doodling on the walls. I have more pics but, due to a hard drive crash, many have end of file errors and stuff that I need to repair before being able to edit and post.

What gets me in #7 is the original plaster crown moulding with gold leaf, very sad that they were just tearing it down. No idea what that goop was on the fire alarm.

The top half of that spiral staircase was VERY claustrophobic and it basically ended in a closet on the 10th floor. Pic #12 is the bottom part of it, I just framed it so that you can't see the doorframe of the closet.

Thanks Skye! I've been exploring but haven't been posting much because I'm not interested in whoring out some of these locations, hence why I waited for this place to be demolished.

Well done, I like #4 for the way the hallway was designed. Hospitals are hit or miss but this one was a hit for sure. Among my dream jobs is to be an employee of Priestly Demolition and to be able to access the buildings they're contracted to demolish.

Sorry guys for keeping this place hush-hush but there was so much untouched goodness in there that we really didn't want to risk it hitting a certain blog and it suddenly being turned into a street artist's playground.

Good thing we have you here to protect these locations that are being demolished. Thank god you are such an elitist, you know, cause you've been to Europe and all. You protected the shit out of it. Good job. The whole city is grateful for your thoughtful noble service.

Thanks! I really liked the dermatology department as well (Hallway in #4), very bright and open. Some pretty interesting carpet in the waiting room that I'll post as soon as I get around to fixing the corrupted files.

You'd have to work for 2 companies to get into all the good stuff. Priestly did Woman's College and PCL did Riverside Hospital (Didn't get into that one).

Nah. I was told of this location in July but never made the trip. Other things on the go. Good try though. And I think I'm done now. You can keep trolling my Facebook all you want but I dint give you a second thought, and this is hopefully the last batch of words I ever string together in your direction. Peace out.

Totally legit. Of course, everyone will believe that because you so frequently pass on this kind of intel…
It's too way early for this much bullshit, the stench is making me feel queazy.

Great job using Google this morning, in the aftermath of course. Just admit it, you didn't know and thus you didn't go. This all happened around the time you were in the city by Bathurst and QQ, just a short walk away from Women's College...
