Entrancing. I wouldn't want to fall through but I'd love to sit or stand there otherwise in its dilapidated state.

Lovely VP.

Beautiful, but scary at the same time. Hopefully, those railings aren't intended to keep someone from falling.

It must be a constant struggle to keep ahead of the decay.

I agree with Jack's comment. I hope someone is looking out for the buildings. These photos are very special.

But a lot remains of their former beauty.
