Gyopi Goldfish Warning

Fort DuPont - Delaware City, DE

Hello! Longtime lurker, first time poster. I wanted to share some photos I took last month of the abandoned buildings at Fort DuPont. It was a military base from the Civil War through WWII (which is the era in which more or less all of the buildings in these photos were built) but now the residences there sit mostly abandoned. My mother tells me it is because of asbestos, but that is perhaps only true for the old movie theater. The only folks really living there now do so in the drug rehab center also located on the property.

I'm not the best photographer, and it's all exterior shots, but I hope you'll enjoy!
