the smoking nun

(no subject)

"This old house" was a little wooden house that was being taken down for new construction on a road that is on my way home. Every time I drove by it I would always think about what history those walls had held. When I saw that it was going to be demolished I stopped and took several pictures using slide film.
I made a polaroid of the slide and transfered the polaroid emulsion to watercolor paper.

I've been lurking in the community for a few months now, and have been slowly building up a stash of interesting abandoned places. Anyway, I'm from Vermont, and one of the most popular abandoned attractions here in Northern New England/Northern New York (as well as something that interests me a whole lot) is abandoned ski areas. There are literally TONS of these old areas around, and the more ski lifts/lodges/stuff left behind the more intersting they are. Anyway, here's my first set of photos for you all:

Mittersill Ski Area, Franconia Notch NH:
Mittersill Ski Area is a ski area adjacent to the still operating Cannon Mountain, right off of I-93 in Franconia Notch New Hampshire. Mittersill closed around 1985, but the trails are still kept clear for skiing, and easily accessable from Cannon. You can read more about the history of this ski area here. The New England Lost Ski Areas Project has a TON of listings of ski areas like this throughout New England and neighboring states/provinces, for those of you interested.
