    I was lucky enough to visit this little gem on my 1st explore into the world of UrbEx and the trip was totally smooth sailing, I even went back a second time for more pictures!

    I don't know a lot about the building and wont divulge it's exact location but suffice to say it was the perfect 1st outing for me and was a lot of fun!:)

    Enjoyed looking at these pics, loved to see the details you chose to depict such as the dirt on the light switch etc. Don't know what that silver booth thing was though
