The Waters of Health: Hallway

Hallway of the Waters of Health, Vestibolo delle Acque della Salute, Livorno
The recent photo and the old one show different views from opposite sides of the hallway, but I think it is still enough to get an idea of how it was then and of its current condition.

Your photo is a fine example of "the beauty of decay."

Oh dear. I hope someone manages to restore it someday.

Yes, the beauty of decay. But it could have been restored and used for so many things! Restaurants, caf├ęs, art galleries, museum, a bit of everything...

Decaying in style.

I like both of them..... for different reasons.

Love the comparison of then and now photos. Seems the health fad of water has come and gone. Neat that the building still stands, but much neglected.
