An Oldie from 2010.

The building from the period between 1892 - 1926 was once home to the Central Office of the nearby iron industry.

      All, 
       
      Heres a quick report from another Paris Ghost Station i have now visited. Its one of the larger ghost stations and one of the most well known. Ive not been activley posting much as of late due to other commitments but i am out there exploring and got another big trip lined up this year too.
      I wont bore you any longer, but heres some history of the station stolen from Google
       
      Saint-Martin is a ghost station of the Paris Métro, located on lines 8 and 9 between the stations of Strasbourg - Saint-Denis and République, on the border of the 3rd and 10th arrondissements of Paris.
      The station was closed on 2 September 1939 at the start of World War II. It reopened after the French Liberation with a lot of traffic passing through, but was eventually closed again as a result of its proximity to the neighboring station of Strasbourg - Saint-Denis, which lies only 100 metres away.
      In the past, the station served to shelter homeless persons, and the eastern section of the location is currently used as a day shelter for the homeless (managed by the Salvation Army).
       
      The station closed on 2nd September 1939.

      This small family crypt was built by a bavarian count in the middle of the 19th century.  Burried are his wife and their son who died at the age of 17.
      Unfortunately vandalism stops at nothing. 99%  of graffities in LPs are crap. In this particular case the creator outed himself to be 100% idiot! 😖😂

      Information about this small church is hard to find. It was built in the middle of the 19th century and is abandoned since the late 1960's.

      When I first saw pictures of this Hotel I fell in love with its architecture. I absolutely love the connection of fairfaced concrete and wood. Therefore I definately had to visit it although before decay had a chance to begin. Unfortunately vandalism comes faster than decay. Despite the bad light conditions and suddenly appearing "visitors" and a barking dog  that required a sudden breakup I am quite happy about my visit.

      Chateau Marianne / Chateau Alchimiste
       
       
      History
       
      Not much history on this location but it was rumoured to be have been once occupied by a former professor. The chateau is located in a small, rural town in France. The town's residents have halved in the last 40 years and it was beginning to look quite run down. I can imagine the nickname  'Alchimiste' (which means Alchemist in French) came from all the chemistry equipment left behind such as: test tubes, syringes, bottles, cylinders and beakers.  It seems the previous inhabitant was also a bit of an artist, we found many paintings scattered around the house and a large collection in the attic, as well as a small studio in an upstairs room.

      I visited this beautiful chateau on a euro trip with @PROJ3CTM4YH3M. We went the previous night to check to see if it was accessible and boy we were in for a shock! Neither of us realised how much stuff had been left and how interesting the contents were. We both particularly liked the framed butterfly collection which was hung up in one of the living rooms, as it reminded us of the film 'Silence of the Lambs.'  After a short investigation we decided to return the following day and booked a hotel in a nearby town.  Arriving the next morning once sun had risen, the place was really brought into it's element. So, as always, hope you enjoy my photos!
