Have you ever peered through a crack in a shuttered window or door and wondered what is hidden from view and what happened to this place?
Take a journey through some of Eastern Pennsylvania’s ruins and discover an evocative new way to look at history and long-neglected sites.
A crumbling asylum, silent prisons, opulent theaters deserving reclamation, quiet fabric and garment mills, a rusty steel giant that once roared 24/7, an eclectic castle, a cemetery that once catered to Philadelphia’s elite, a still school that was once the pride of the region, and remnants of agrarian districts are found among Eastern Pennsylvania’s diverse collection of abandonments succumbing to economic and cultural shocks.
Throughout this book, pictures on top of pictures emerge with stories about loss. Discover a surreal world that development has left behind, where industry collapses, or culture changes and decay take over.
