An abandoned tenement block, presumably 1950s give or take a decade. I was surprised to find this still festering at the top of Upper Pitt Street since I assumed it had been demolished long ago. But there is was, tinned up since about 2002 judging from the stuff inside. About 2/3 rds of the flats were accessible, but all are pretty stripped. It looks like the pipes, wiring and most of the fittings were taken some time ago, maybe before the block was sealed, and little has happened since. Not a huge amount to see since its mostly empty rooms but there are a few bits of furniture, children’s toys, piles of old clothes etc. As in the Welsh Streets venture a while ago, the most interesting aspect turned out to be wallpaper - mainly because that’s pretty much all that’s left. In fact wallpaper is in danger of turning into a bit of a thing with me. Some of it is quite pretty, but the central fascination is why anyone would want decorate their entire flat in some corrugated zig-zag anaglypta horror. Anyway, we proceed to the pictures, roughly grouped by category with some wallpaper fillers.

One the way in, an outside wardrobe in an overgrown part of the rear.

Yes, I admit I moved the bear into shot - it was hiding round the corner before. Some evidence of rough sleepers in a few of the flats, but nothing recent.

These garish things are 'borders' - usually at dado rail height

The Anglican Cathedral through a hole in the roof.

Overall a moderately diverting explore, and probably, in its day, not a bad place to live. The tenement has planning permission for demolition.

To conclude I thought I’d mention Eldon Grove over on the other side of town, which is a much nicer abandoned tenement (architecturally speaking). It seems this is finally getting some attention, having been druggy-central for years. Still easy to visit.

If i'm honest, i was not expecting much from this report, but I was wrong and your photos make the place look really interesting.
The old "don't judge a book by its cover" rule certainly applies here.

Good effort mate liked that :thumb
Thanks for the comments folks. Of course a compilation report like this glamourises the place - true of most reports I suppose - in reality its as grotty as one would expect. Just wish my pics would come out sharper - they look fine on my screen at home, but blurry after uploading.

Many people won't remember the oldskool Anaglypta wallpaper and them 70's/80's furnishings, a proper blast from the past seeing some of that old tacky old tat!

Nice work, there won't be many examples about these day's
