Found via Dark Roasted Blend, here’s another site showcasing some incredibly beautiful photography of abandoned buildings before the wreckers move in:
Preservation Photo dedicates itself to documenting architecture through photography in an effort to preserve a building’s history.
Some illustrative examples:
The massive Bancroft Mill complex was the largest and longest running mill in Delewares Brandywine Valley before it went bankrupt in 2003.
At it’s peak the several hundred acre campus housed over 3500 patients (known as “clients”) and began suffering from overcrowded conditions. Sexual abuse, neglect, and appalling living conditions led to a class action lawsuit against the school in 1977. The school was found guilty of violating patients rights and was officially shut down a decade later in 1987.
