For new inmates of Alcatraz, these showers were their first stop after the initial search. Here they would shower, and be issued their clothes and shoes.
Today, if you visit, your journey into the cell blocks begins at the showers also, only this is where you will pick up your device for your audio tour.
Many rumors about Alcatraz are incorrect. The waters are not shark infested, no prisoners went to the electric chair... one rumor that IS true, is that the tours sell out a month in advance. So plan your trip to the rock well ahead of time.
The old elevator...or is it a lift?...🌾Sanatorium in the Uckermark🌾Time for a new series: around 1800 tuberculosis developed to a threatening disease. Bad working conditions while industrialisation raised up, crowded dark flats with wet air and starving among the urban poor were the reasons why this infection of the lungs exploded in these years. Vacation in fresh air, sun tanning and walking in the forests was the best therapy, many tuberculosis sanatories were built in healthy areas near to big towns. Thanks to this we can explore these sanatoriums which are mostly abandoned today. I visited this Place about a year ago and didn't find the time to post the pictures yet😊Hohenlychen was founded in 1902 under the auspices of the German Red Cross. Mothers and their children lived here and got the best possible treatment in a beautiful nature area. During the First World War the place was changed into a military hospital and after that into a center for sports medicine and research. That's the reason why a swimming hall with pools for water treatments was added to the buildings. If you're interested in the further history you'll find it on Wikipedia. Not everything you'll read there is nice. I hope you enjoy the various pictures of this amazing place which is restaurated meanwhile and has a new use...#renegade_abandoned#froggy_members#abandoned_junkies#sombrexplore#fa_rejected#kings_abandoned#ig_asylum#aband0n_all_h0pe#exploring_shotz#urbex_utopia_mbr#bpa_urbex#infinity_unguarded#abandon_seekers_#grime_lords#ic_urbex#jj_urbex#ig_urbex#ig_abandoned#grime_nation#abandonedafterdark#mansion#secret#scary#sombresociety
