Exactly what it says on the label. Photos, thoughts, rambling discourse. No HDR, PhotoSlop, or cell phone shots of what I had for breakfast.

All photography appearing on this blog is my own; all re-blogs are of my own work from other pages.

This is the original second-floor foyer leading into the original 1828 Administration Building at Western State Hospital, one of the first public asylums in America.  To the right of frame is the door leading onto the front porch with its grand columns; to left, the staircase leading up to third floor with its ornate wooden spiral staircase.  Ahead and behind are the female and male wards.  For interior architecture that has lasted for nearly two centuries, it’s holding up quite well - and thankfully, will be renovated at some future date.
