Revisit of Armstrong Cork. I needed a peeling paint photo for something I was working. This building is/was the Cathedral of Peeling Paint so out I went.
The building has been boarded up since the last time I was there so its dark and the peling paint has fallen off the walls to a great degree and the paint chips
on the floor that used to crunch under your feet like dry leaves are now just crumbs. That damn cat is still there but didnt scare me like the last time. I got bit
by a mosquito while setting up a shot in a dirty bathroom, bloody mess, I stuck myself with a rusty screw, bloody mess, and tromped through poison ivy getting there. This all for
a peeling paint photo that I may or may not use for a Twitter background!
Cranberry Specialty Hospital 8/09
Cranberry Specialty Hospital, also known as the Plymouth County State Hospital. This facility has been
closed for about 15 years now and is in limbo as the town tries to find a good use for the land and recoup some of the money spent on the property. The facility and
patients were merged into other state hospitals in the area.

This group of photos also has some great dirty bathrooms that are now part of the "Bathroom Series" for sale on the "Best Sellers" page.
Armstrong Cork Company building, has been abandoned since approximately 1990-92? A newspaper clipping tacked to an employees locker door boasted
'Storm of the Century' Hits Area." The factory had been previously visited by the usual cast of characters that made sure the place was well ventilated. I put together a panoramic view of one of the spaces, I was using my short lens
so it is some what distorted. The room is actually a rectangle, not an "W," as the panorama may lead you to believe.
