  1. France Sanitorium de Foret... Sept '14

Main Building... ...The Morgue... Thanks for lookin in... Got some NKPS Euro shenanigans to pop up soon, keep em peeled!
  2. The Wheelbirks Estate was changed by a Quaker named David Richardson in the first decade of the 20th century. In addition to extending the farmhouse he built 6 estate cottages which along with the bridges, roadside walls and seats in the woods he adorned with carved texts. He also built a sanitorium (left unfinished at his death in 1913) for TB sufferers at his leather-works at Elswick. It is of cruciform construction and stands as if on stilts in a hollow. It is constructed mainly of steel reinforced concrete and glass, having bridges going in from the back and the front. As antibiotics were developed isolation hospitals were deemed unnecessary and this sanitorium was probably never used for its intended purpose. The building seems to be used for storage for the estate farm, so not massive amounts to see inside. On with the pics: Thanks for looking
