  1. Throwing up something else from the vaults, visited not quite a year ago with a non OS member. This house, built in 1883, was described at the time in a local newspaper as “perhaps the most elegant country home in Middle Georgia.” The home changed hands between three families, the first in 1889, the second in 1978. Unfortunately in 2001 the house suffered a fire, which severely burnt the back portion of the house, stairs, and part of the roof. The owners have since been trying to find someone to buy and restore the house. I must say, the fireplaces in this house were absolutely gorgeous. 1. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 2.

    Holy smokes, awesome work here! That is an amazing view!
  3. Awesome work, I love a good water treatment plant.
  4. That definitely is an extremely American looking building. I never would have guessed that was to be a sanitarium at one point had I driven by it. It looks like what it seems to be used for now though, an old rural farmhouse with a few odd design choices and more windows than normal. I really like the shots with the bright wallpaper and fine drink though, thanks for sharing.

    This is one of those places I never get tired of seeing pics from. I'm glad you decided to climb up the tower, I rarely see pics from the top anymore, fantastic job.

    Oh shit, found me out you have, hhmmm
  7. The Martin Office Building, also known as the American Life Building, and the Stonewall Building, was built in 1925. it originally housed the Birmingham City Commission as well as various other firms and tenants. Sometime in the sixties The American Life Insurance Company moved their headquarters into the building and it came to be known as the American Life Building. ALI later acquired the Stonewall Insurance Company, which occupied the building until around 1979. The building gradually started being vacated until it's only function was as a document storage building until 2000. It has been essentially vacant since then. There have been numerous proposals and plans to renovate the building, all of which have fallen through. The farthest any proposal got was in 2008 when work got started to turn the building into some apartments. The work had gotten as far as complete asbestos removal, about 90% of the building being gutted, and the top floor almost being completely renovated into the new apartments when the 08-09 economic collapse completely stopped the project in it's tracks. it has since sat empty, with only a few vague proposals that went nowhere. I do wish I would've been able to see this building prior to the 2008 renovation work, as the old architecture and interiors are still very photogenic even being almost entirely barren. There's also a significant amount of squats in the building, we didn't run into any sqautters while we were roaming around however. We did run into a group of obnoxiously loud 15-16 year olds who we heard coming into the building while we were on the sixth or seventh floor. We decided to spook them in the staircase as they made their way up. 1. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 2. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 3. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 4. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 5.

  8. That's damn impressive. Love all the old tech, thanks for sharing this one.

    Thanks guys, glad you all enjoyed it
  10. I'm located over in Birmingham Al. There's plenty of people in the Atlanta area that explore, I've explored places around Georgia with a number of guys over there. https://www.flickr.com/groups/599735@N21/ might be a good place to find someone to meet up with.
  11. It's been a little bit since I've posted anything but that doesn't mean I've been slacking on exploring. The last week of December and early January me and my exploring pal decided it was a good time to get down and dirty scouting, researching, and exploring places here around Birmingham, since he had a few weeks off from college classes. Despite a recent revival in the downtown area of Birmingham, it's still a town filled with lots of blight, and is consistently mentioned as one of the more dangerous big city in the country. A blight filled town is great from an exploring standpoint, not great from any other standpoint. But on with the pics. I unfortunately haven't been able to find much of any information about this little church tucked away in the ghetto. About all I know is that it's an old Methodist church. It's very nice and impressive from the outside, but unfortunately the inside has been victim to some terribly cheap renovations. The good shepherd stained glass window is still very impressive however. 1. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 2. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 3. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 4. Untitled by Alex, on Flickr 5.

    Looks like a lovely little place. That blue ceiling is rather nice, and I love all the moss growing on the outside. Also that ladder, I've never seen anything like that!
  13. Wild indeed, I don't usually go in for sewers and tunnels and the like but this one is pretty nice. Love the coverage of events as well.
