And I want to see the innards of the place.  :p

Perhaps,
but as a school, it's not likely to be of much importance.
Schools may have been something of a stronghold way back when
due to their robust construction, but even back in the old days,
people understood the importance of protecting children over safeguarding caches
within large safes.

I was talking about the Bank? POST 18969521


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

A stack of pretty old firewood, not usual for a bank. Has someone been living in there?

I doubt it. That is OLD timber. Probably from an old adjacent building that no longer exists.

Interesting. What was the purpose of the building?

Late reply,

This was the connecting corridor of two buildings that were supposed to house the Ministry of Labor in Athens. No one wanted to go the suburbs, then there was a corruption scandal with the goverment giving the building to a Monastery etc. it was left abandoned and then got dilapidated from every saleable equipment.

The North building

What a shame the govt spent so much money on those buildings then to never get used.

Thank you for replying!

This is a small piece of what was once Chicopee Manufacturing Corporation, built in 1927. It's a pretty big complex and pieces of it are still used for various industries. For the most part it is empty however, or used as extra warehouse space. This particular part (see the brick portion) was used to load/unload rail cars. I'm not quite sure what the smoke stack was for. I could easily spend a month shooting this place inside and out. What you see here is about 5% of what is actually there and sits separate along the rail spur. It's on the National Register of Historic Places.
