I stumbled on this one in 2008, it was incredibly intact with the only damage being caused by things rusting and falling off the wall (like the wallpaper).
Climbing down the ladder you have two options, the carsey or the listening room. Here are the pictures from 2008.

I pasted them in from my windows 7 PC, they appeared both in the body of the post and across the bottom as thumbnails with ambiguous options (I can't remember the exact wording). I ticked the boxes on each thumbnail which seemed most likely to include them but that made each picture appear twice in the main body of the post so I deleted half of them. However after posting it just showed a load of links which don't work. I've not had time to do it again yet but I'll try from my Linux box later and see if that works better. I originally read the image attachment instructions before trying to make sense of the very long bewildering thread about titles for ROC posts which might have thrown me too. That's the trouble with being old.

I'm nigh on 70 I don't have problem. Use the attach file, it should take you to your PC to you can select the file and photo you want to upload. Not keen on copy and pasting myself.
