Boarded House Yellow A yellow house above the mineshaft. Similar Images ...based on the tags: boarded-windows, fences, houses, sunsets, trees... Ground floor windows were built to be barred. Looking out at the abandoned neighborhood around the house. Some of the internal staircases were fitted with cages that wound round down the stairs to deter suicidal patients from taking a dive.
