Via MetaFilter, images from the decaying Detroit Public Schools Book Depository/ Roosevelt Warehouse. As Sweet Juniper! relates - It will rise from the ashes - this scene and many similar ones arose from the urban decay of Detroit, where huge sections of infrastructure such as the monumental Michigan Central Station have simply been abandoned.
PS: sorry about the month-long break in posts. I had my appendix out over Christmas. On the plus side, though, I did learn something about piddock.
