beds

Bedframe

The view into one of the asylum rooms of Norwich Hospital. A long time ago, a window broke, letting the vines crawling up the bricks outside to move indoors and across the floor.

Cracked Wall

I really like the way this high-ceilinged room is decaying. Well, decayed. It’s demolished now.

Red Carpet

Shag carpet is fabulous, and I hope it makes a comeback.

Pink Room

The vibrant colors clashed with the silent hotel.

Beds in Hallway

Beds line a basement room that is part way between the concepts of inside and outside. Boards and bricks were falling while I was photographing it—stay out.

Daily Special

Part of the hotel where employees slept and spare bed parts were stored.

Basement Bed

One of a few dozen steel bed frames left in the rubble of the collapsing building.

Clowns

Strange graffiti in a side room. Someone was having fun…

Zebra Room

The zebras had the right idea when they saw the pink beds–run.

Green Wall

The original color of the wall was probably green.

Static Room

Seven TV sets and not one shows my reflection. I’d also like to point out not two of these are the same.

The Three Hundreds

This is the far interior of the hotel, where the darkness made the shag carpet seem to move whenever the trees outside swayed. That is to say, constantly.

Bed Rest

Judging by the bed, this room was used by employees in its later years.

Westboro Sunset

This room on the top floor of one of the oldest buildings has seemingly not changed since it was adapted for employee use. Some sections of the hospital were adapted for staff to live in. Paying Patient Ward–where capable patients were separated from wards of the state.
