I bring to you some pictures I took quite a few months ago of a house my brother and I happened upon in the seaside village know as Williamstown, a coastal suburb of Melbourne.

According to my net research, the first settlement in Williamstown was around the late 1830s- it spent a while being a dodgy place (well it was a convict port!). My brother, who knows alot more about early Australian architecture than I do, wagers that this may have been built around the 1850s or a little before, so it's possible that this old girl is one of the original buildings to the area. You can see in the pictures that posh bastards are quickly encroaching- Williamstown is a victim of the upper-classes, as so many coastal towns are.

enough chatter, gimme some visuals!Collapse )

I've been neglecting you, oh abandonedplaces. So to make up for it, here is a huge bunch of pictures from one of the abandoned schools I went to on my road trip to rural North Dakota in May. This was the second time I'd been to the school and I liked it so much I had to bring my roadtripmate eatstoomuchjam there. The first time I didn't go in because I didn't know there was a road that went right up to the door, and I was 8 months pregnant.

ahhhh, the Brantford School, the second time. It always tastes better the second time...

lots and lots more pictures of the little orange school in the middle of nowhereCollapse )
