An independent members only club, dedicated to the working man who required a certain place for private meetings and events. 

This place has a little bit of everything. Dark, creepy unlit rooms, and rooms where light was still flourishing through the gaps and crevices. 

It has had many aliases since the buildings birth in the 1920's and had less than 300 members.

Along the many years the workmens club was usually packed full of people, to the point you couldn't even move. 

Slowly but surely however the club started to lose money as members became scarce. It couldn't pay it's own way and since the number of members started dwindling,

the Workmans club had to close its doors to the few remaining loyal members. 

Now sits empty and has done for more than 6 years now.

Hopefully the building can see new life in the near future, but for me it was good to get an unusual view of the club.

Cheers for looking!

I like how some of those photos look - quite moody and kind of abstract.
