    Some great images in here! I need to dig out a shot of the hotel in Mineral Wells. Beautiful building. I wish that someone could make a go at restoring it.

    What a neat building. In fact, I'm headed for Seattle tomorrow to pick up some equipment. If I can, I'll stop by.

    Hard to imagine the massive investment it would take to put this place back in order. The sidewalk had several tiny dead bats laying around, I'm sure the hotel houses a sizable colony! It would make a great movie set though.

    This is an oldie, and I really need to go back again. The former Birdboro Corporation mill, Birdsboro, PA.

    Birdsboro Corporation by Scott, on Flickr

    The company that became Birdsboro Corp. started in the 1700s as an iron forge and went through multiple iterations before the mill was shuttered in the 80s. The building is still there, and has been parted out to multiple small businesses, but is largely vacant. The water tower was felled years ago now.

    Read all about it here.

    5x7 Arista, 121/8 Super Angulon (I think)

    I didn't realize that the upper end of this building borders I5. I've driven by this building many times, but didn't realize the view that it offers from below.

    This is a house in Little Falls, NY that was built in 1832. Until 2013ish, it was still in the same family. Unfortunately, none of the descendants are in that area and in need of a house that size. Yes, ok, it's my family - my grandmother was the last to live in the house and she passed away in 2010 at age 97. It was sold a few years after her death. A few changes have been made since it was built, but all were made more than 50 years ago. I'm also attaching an old photo of it (from maybe the early 1900s?). As far as I know, it's always been brick that was painted yellow.

    Very nice looking home. That kind of elegant living is long gone. Plenty of room for a darkroom?

    The basement is more rustic than you'd expect (though probably nice by 1832 standards) and has a dirt floor. There also isn't "real" plumbing in most of it as far as I remember. But with a little creativity, I'm sure it could be rigged. The ceiling isn't very tall. BUT, with the number of rooms in the house, I'd bet one could be done upstairs somewhere. My great-grandmother was a watercolorist and made a room on the third floor into a studio - north light, pretty cool. Yeah, I wish I'd been in a position to move back up there to take over the house.
