re: Sea view patients


I'm currently writing a book about Sea View and the nurses who worked there. I'm looking to talk with anyone who worked there, was a patient or knew anyone who was a patient. Please contact me through my website:

Châteaux de France

C'est triste de voir un si bel édifice, chargé de l'histoire de France, oublié comme un villan intrus !Pourquoi les gens ne sont pas solidaires et s'affairent, s'aident, et font renaître ces magnifiques édifices ? Où sont passés les Historiens d'Arts ? Où sont passés les architectes ? Où sont passés les Compagnons avec leurs pantalons noirs pattes d`éléphants ? Les menuisiers ? Les Tailleurs de Pierres ? Les Maçons ? et toutes les autres braves gens qui aimaient construire la Belle Architecture ? TOUS DISPARUS ? PAS POSSIBLE, mon cœur pleure de voir toutes ces beautés oubliées, délaissées, quel gâchis! Quel disgrâce!Courageux, ouvrons nos cœurs, le temps d'un camp d'été, le temps d'un camp d'hiver, le temps d'un camp de printemps pour faire renaître nos Château d'un Temps !Unissons-nous dans la joie et la bonne humeur, merci.

Appreciate your work!

Hello my friends!

I really appreciate your pictures - great work, especially thos from beneath the surface Exploring subterranean locations - civil or military - is my fafourite section of Urban Exploration! Though i live in the Ruhr Area in Germany we have a lot of tunnels, bunkers and even subterranean parts of ex-steel plants around her. Even a few whole abandoned mines which can be explored. If you are interested so see a few of them, here are few of my favourite examples: My favourite abandoned places in Germany.

Anyways keep up the good work, i really like your catacomb-pictures! – Melbourne
