Cough-y House: Abandoned Cresson Tuberculosis Sanatorium

6 days 1 hour ago
[ By Steve in Abandoned Places & Architecture. ]

Dude, harsh – welcome to the good old days!

Telegrama, no tuit A los agoreros apocalípticos que disfrutan siempre dibujando escenarios oscuros en que todo se desintegra y que, a la larga, como mucho sólo se cumplen en parte, tenemos que agradecerles que nos obliguen a plantearnos dichas emergencias. Y a buscar alternativas para unas caídas que finalmente nunca suelen ser abismos sino sólo … Continue reading Carlos Cachón
