Pics of the old nurse's quarters next to Killdale hospital. Soon not to be there anymore...

Unedited... straight from the IIs with the kit lens...

What a shame that beautiful building will be torn down rather than reused. Nice sharp shots. I really like the pictures with the vines spreading out across the building and into the porch.

A great photographic survey of a fascinating old building. I'm far from an expert on architecture, but this place looks to have been built in the late 19th century? I normally find structures of that era to be grim, but this old building really has personality - I'm with Tamia; it's a shame the place can't be refurbished and used.

I've lived in this area practially my whole life and never knew what this building was used for until the recent article about it being razed. I'd love to get a look inside this building!!! I imagine it would make for awesome inside window portraits!!

I agree. What a wonderful building and the stories it could tell. Too bad they will raze it.
