I'd would like to tell you about one of the history underground systems. This system is located in the capital of Russia, Moscow, and the name of this system - Solyanka. It's on the Solyanka street in the center of Moscow. Solyanka translated "saltwort".

Salt fish courtyard was built in XVI—XVII cent., it was base for save salt and salted fish. In 1913 this base was rebuilt, they built a multi-storey house with big basement. There is the garages in 1990s, this place was very popular for diggers, but some years ago this system was closed for free visit.

Thank you everyone who's messaged about the latest idiot who thought it was a good idea to spam the group. Their account has already been suspended on LJ and banned here. The company is based in Hong Kong, so they either didn't understand or care about the rules for posting in the community.

I made my last post in this comm in error. I was going for the puns comm but I guess I am not a member there anymore.

but it seems to have taken a bit of a rooting here as well. Perhaps I have abandoned the rules of this comm and it didn't get lost in the thread.

I was going to delete the post from this comm but, well it is too late now.

Abandoned Homes in Calaveras County

I feel so fortunate to have been able to photograph these two structures in February 2013, as they were demolished a year later.  The entire mountain-side has been landscaped now, and you would never know these houses existed.  I drive by this site often, as it's about 10 minutes from my home in Calaveras County along highway 4.  I watched for years as these houses fell apart and deteriorated.  Finally the front wall of the first house crumbled exposing the entire living-room, just as the occupants had left it.

February 13, 2013

This was the view from the highway.  There is a ravine with a creek running through it between the houses and the highway, so we had to park and walk up into the forest behind the structures to get to them.

The second house on the site didn't seem to be in quite the same state of deterioration.

Second HouseCollapse )

This is what the hill-side looks like today. I really wish I had gotten some pictures during the demolition.  It's not exactly an easy place to access however, being right on the highway.

Help Identify Abandoned Farmhouse Outbuildings, etc.

Close to 40 years ago now, my parents bought a farm in Eastern NC. I grew up there, and still visit on occasion, but it hasn't been a farm in AGES unless you count a few scattered fruit and nut trees. I think at this point it's fairly safe to say that the old outbuildings qualify as abandoned, even though the farmhouse and property are pretty well kept-up. They still have a lot of the original farm equipment and things stored inside.

Maybe you can help me figure out something I've always kinda wondered:
WHAT KIND OF BUILDING DO YOU THINK THIS IS? (Note the tiny door inside the also-tiny door.)
