|We actually found several records and 45s scattered around the place, including a Redd Foxx comedy album. Finding it was probably the funniest thing about it, and especially ironic considering this was a veritable junkyard.|
|At this point we went up to the first floor (which is actually a little above the ground). The first floor is only half-burried.|
|Here's the other side of the lobby including the front door (which is boarded over).|
|Inside what appeared to be the former principal's office, there was still a lot of paperwork lying around. These were actually twenty-plus year-old legal papers from when a law office took over this space.|
|They kept the place real tidy too, lemme tell ya.|
|And check out the state-of-the-art equipment!|
|Yeah, but where to you even begin to lay out the caution tape at this point?|
|Those are law books on the shelves in
On a personal note, I really dig those comfy chairs, man. They almost match the insulation as well.
|Another set of bookshelves. I don't think that's going to be enough Windex though.|
|This guy was a bit into the golf thing. In addition to these shoes, there were awards from tournaments, etc. The shoes look like Exhibit A in an assault case, if you ask me.|
|Another boarded up front entrance. That's a piano next to it...|
|It wasn't in great shape, exactly. I played it a little with a broken hammer (of which there were many lying there), but it was more like a harp since the face was off it.|
|Another chunk of piano.|
|A large room upstairs with quite a bit of furniture (including a whole bunch of armchairs not pictured against the opposite wall) and...|
|8-tracks! First vinyl, and now these!
Selections included Nancy Wilson, Muddy Waters (live!), and Hank Crawford. Yeah, I didn't know who Hank was either.
