    Beautiful pics and telling of Charlotte's story while you were here. The pianos are quite beautiful and should be taken out of there if they can still be salvaged. My other favorite part of this house is the green fireplace with the mirror above. It would also look great repurposed elsewhere, in a hotel or even in someone's home who is restoring the property to the correct time period.
    Come follow me into the darkness.....let's see what awaits us down this darkened hallway, behind this closed door.....

    Firstly BG - Well done. Great find and pictures that generate thought.
    Now, I really don't see what's wrong with anyone saying how the images make them feel or how they interpret them. They make me think about possessions and how unimportant they really are when all is said and done. Time is the real value that none of us have endless supply of - use it wisely. That's what the pictures say to me.

    Thats exactly what I like in a post, I almost feel Iv shown too much (but it was too good not to) its good to have a bit of mystery to a place. It certainly gave me mixed feelings when exploring from the usual Adrenalin fuelled excitement of finding a place to sadness of the story to be told & astonishment of the unusual items that were left!

    Thanks, pianos are always the last to go, they have very little residual value compared to the hassle of moving them! I know someone who is trying to get rid of one at the moment & struggling. That said its a fine example in excellent condition, I will be distraught when the inevitable idiots find this & start smashing it up!

    It is interesting (to me, anyway), the juxtaposition between an explore and the feelings/emotions a place evokes. Dictums Strictus is right, there is the decay, and the history of a place, but personally, I donít think there is anything wrong in being open to the feelings a venue offers. Flight of fancy? Maybe, but there is a story to tell, and like most stories, it requires active participation by the reader. Maybe thereís room for both?
    Tread carefully, you walk on othersí dreams.
