A sign on an open door is not much of a barrier to entry.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

I find it ironic...the paint isn't peeling, but the door is.

No door remains closed forever! A great place to explore.

The condition of the door makes it a fine subject. Excellent picture of its state of decay.

A great documentary shot on the dry rotting of a door, held together by a layer of paint!!

That door holds many stories I am sure. Stories other than those of trespassers :-)
I bet that hardwood floor was beautiful back in its day.

@Michael Rawluk: Hard to believe that construction like that went into what today might be called a "juvenile detention center," a few years ago a "reform school,: and when it was built a "training school."

I'd find it irresistible to pick at that blistered paint . . .
