    Default Stone Galleon Ltd - Birmingham - Feb 20


    Hardly worth posting this & was hardly worth photographing which is kinda why Im posting!

    I didnt think it worth getting the camera out so all these were phone pics (on a fairly old iphone) so just wanting to see opinions on them really.



    As prev reports I really cant find any history on this place, other than it was a "tacky goods" import business.. Oh & its completely nackered.

    We firstly entered the neighbouring Kingfield Heath building to be met by some unsavoury looking characters so one quick snap in here was all I got



    we left this unit sharply & headed in next door, the access was fun but as all prev reports suggest its a bit of a death trap in there with floors & staircases collapsing everywhere





    Looking back to the Kingfield building



    Sales Office







    The stairs had some lovely tiling at one point!











    Clock machine remains





    Thanks For looking
    What the hell am I doing, I mean really at my age!

    the iPhone will produce superb images - as we see here. It's what the photographer sees that makes the images superb or rubbish. You sir have the 'eye' and your images always tell a story. Superb as always!!
