Yeah, the day's upon us. 8/29/07- Weston State Hospital is being sold to commercial interests. I'll post more info when I know it.
In observance of her last night as a state-owned entity, here's a few photos from my last couple visits...
Next few are from another day. I stopped by one evening to talk to the head of security about some new ownership related stuff... and what kind of photographer would I be if I went to a Kirkbride without my camera? On this day, it'd rained all day and was quite hazy.
16. Compare with the photo above... she's still ticking!
And now a more grim task... the dreaded Danvers-type map. I really, really hope I won't have to start shading pieces that dreaded shade of red... but reality is, I'll probably have to.
Good luck, my lady.
