    Default POW camp Essex


    Hi, it looks like the pow camp grounds have been sold, chainsaws are now cutting back the trees and undergrowth and diggers are clearing a path in for the demolition to start. This was used for German prisoners to pack eggs. I have been photographing it for a while now, quite rare to find something on you,r doorstep, enjoy the pics









    I will post some pics of the demo job, sad really

    Nice pics. Love the one of the shower. And the cars.
    No signature due to chronic lack of imagination, creativity and wit.
