I braved the entry under the sagging porch roof (without a helmet), and found this. Clearly, someone had been squatting here, but I hope they found better quarters before this destruction occurred.

Well captured in good natural light and nice toning. A paradies for rats and others.

More funky old stuff Harry, and great image. The visuals are great but I don't care to think too long of what has gone on there.

Someone would have to be pretty desperate to use this for a place to sleep. I’m glad you risked the porch and went inside.
