UK asbestos house , midlands 2017

Recommended Posts

not much history to find on this house , somewhere in the midlands

couldnt get a decent external shot due to the ammount of growth round it,

the house was one of those prefab jobs made from fibre board containing white asbestos

i liked the wallpaper in some rooms it was very 1970s

old nova in the garage and caravan thats seen better times in the jungle of a garden

bit pic heavy as there was a few bits to see

Sad to see this sort of thing.. Obviously some old person, that died after living out many years alone. The car was presumably bought when they retired. The tax ran out 9 years ago..

 

You can tell they were an intelligent, well to do type, by the stuff in the house. The musical instrument reeds, and the cartridge cases. One looks like a .303 and the other maybe a .308..

 

The nursing contributions book dated 1946/47/48...  if you go from 1946 it is about 43 years until the car was made, and the tax ran out 9 years ago. Sooo i would say they were born in about 1926, started nursing in about 1947, did 44 years and retired at 65 in 1991 and bought the car brand new, and, as the tax ran out 9 years ago, i guess they died at about 84 years of age. You can tell they were a single bloke, by the stuff in the house having being untouched since about 1950 by the look of it and i doubt many women would run about with a full bore sporting rifle either.

 

The photos must be their parents and siblings.. I like the balsa rubber powered model aircraft kit. That would be from the 1960's i would guess..

 

Seems a terrible way for someones life to end up..

some of the papers and bits all leave clues as to who the people were and the lives they lived , thats why i enjoy this hobby , capturing the whats left ,

there is a gun cabinet next to the coat on the door, it was locked contents unknown

Oh yes! i never noticed the gun cabinet. After the occupant left, his cert would have expired at some stage, and the police would have been round. You need "good reason" now for shotgun certs, and you have always needed it for a firearms cert, and the police check, so if he was no longer in a club or what ever, they would not have renewed the certs anyway..

 

Lovely photos though!! Well done you!!

      Another well visited place May 2019
      Formerly it used to be some form of home for single mothers with children apparently from ireland (salvation army maternity home) , also kim catrell was apparently born there
      Now the depressing bit
      Two brothers were fined more than £82,000 after their “depressing, unhygienic and unsafe” care home was shut down by inspectors.
      These breaches were assessed by CQC as extreme, as the seriousness of the concerns placed a significant risk on the lives, health and well-being of the people living in the home.
      The premises were unsafe and poorly maintained. 
      There was insufficient hot water and unsafe windows in many people’s bedrooms. The premises were also unclean and placed people at risk from infection. 
      People were smoking in the building where the fire detection units were faulty and oxygen cylinders were also present which caused a considerable fire hazard.
      The list goes on and on thankfully no one died as a consequence the above issues

      Treading a well worn path to this behemoth of a building 
       
      The foundation stone for Greenbank Drive Synagogue was laid on 14 June 1936 by Baron Tobias Globe attended by the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire, Dr J H Hertz. The building was consecrated on August 15 1937 and opened by Professor Henry Cohen (a member of the congregation and later Lord Cohen of Birkenhead). The basement area of the building was originally used as a youth centre and the synagogue had its own scout troop (the 22nd Wavertree). During the blitz in 1941 Greenbank Drive Synagogue was used as a reception centre for bombed out families in Liverpool and held a non-Jewish service at Christmas. It was also used as a social centre during the war by American Jewish GIs stationed at an air base in Burtonwood, Warrington. After the war they presented a plaque to the congregation (displayed in the entrance hall). In May 1959 a burglar started a fire that destroyed the Ark and Torah scrolls and part of the roof structure. The building was subsequently restored by the original firm of architects at a cost of £50,000 and re-consecrated in 1961. Due to increasing competition the youth centre closed at this time. A further fire occurred in two first floor offices behind the ladies' gallery in 1965 but damage was confined to the former areas. The building ceases active use on January 5 2008.

      A short little report from a little while back.
       
      Without going into too much detail this building is one of the more longer abandonments situated on the ground of a partially used hospital some where in the south.
       
      The ground around the building has been flattened and at the time of our visit workers were at it digging the land up or something like that. 
       
      After sneaking past the workers and into the building we spent a short period inside before the noise of wooden boards being cut filled the area. We got out before we couldn't anymore...

      Traveling through eastern Poland together we saw an abandoned house near the road. quick decision - we are entering. From the outside, the house did not offer much. The entrance was easy, only to our misfortune the house was empty, there was not much equipment in it, practically bare walls. Taking advantage of the fact that we are inside, we decided to go down to the cellars and garage, which we saw from the road. While walking around the house from the other side, we saw an open window leading to the garage. Our surprise was huge, it was difficult to believe that Jaguar was there! Quick entry inside and here is. Beautiful Jaguar 420, and most importantly, it is in quite good condition, with most details and elements. Unfortunately, the engine was gently stolen, but the unit with a capacity of 4.2 liters was still beautiful. It once produced a dizzying 245 km, which allowed the 1.7 tonne vehicle to accelerate to nearly 200km / h. Then we went to the interior of this classic of the 60s. The door was closed, but the mechanism of the lock still worked, which allowed us to sit on the seats of this luxury vehicle. Each indicator, meter, and clock was in perfect condition, the steering wheel caused great resistance, but this is probably because the Jaguar tires have lost most of the air over the years. Every button, the switch went like it was completely new. The car was exceptionally comfortable and very well equipped. With time, it has come to us that after the photos and memories of this Jaguar will not be much, because the owner forgot about him, and he is waiting alone for him in the garage.
