Been meaning to check this place out for months since it was first done by Northern Exposure. Its a total time capsule, the circa 1970s office equipment and decor are in exceptionally untouched/unchaved condition.

The front gate.

IBM mainframe computer and telephone switch - really old gear this and probably not that old when this place closed.
I poped open the drive eject and amazingly there was a big 8inch floppy disk still in there - popped it back in as I'm all out of 8inch floppy drives to read it.

The pure 70s style reception is dominated by this "sculpture" on the stairs

And some random shots from the drawing rooms and offices.

Its a great site, and thanks again to Northern Exposure for finding this originally.
