Hospital's Pictures

One of the Most Expensive Hotels in the World
One of the Most Expensive Hotels in the World (Orange San Francisco)

Here at Richmond Hospital there's no afternoon tea, there's no bar and no concierge service, I was appalled especially when merely checking in cost over 700CAD and checking out is a rather complicated procedure, a procedure that you have to go through at some unspecified time in the future that happens to involve an unspecified task. So it's a bit of a Crystal Maze with a little of Kafka's The Trial mixed in with Savoy prices (and then some). Despite all of this it was nice to see something that the Savoy doesn't have... rabbits, and a nice tame one they have here too, though I did get a little close and to my surprise it hopped sideways by one foot in the blink of an eye. Needless to say now I have exposed the winning formula, hotels all around the world will be following suit... with the rabbit thing not the Kafka (no-one knows anything of your eventual release) thing. I say Kafka but I suppose it's more if ab Arthur Koestler Darkness at Noon thing.... I'll shut up.

The front of Ancoats Hospital as was. The blue bit is a fence to stop you getting in there, as it is to be demolished. It would be interesting to know more about the building such as when it stopped being a hospital and when it was shut up, perhaps after a little investigation I shall know.

Another picture of the street lights in Ancoats that looked pretty impressive... well I say that and in some ways they are just a little industrial for my liking. On the right is Ancoats hospital where my Wife's Granddad died, on the left you can just make out seats for people to sit and overlook a fence and some houses.

Also during our trip to Ancoats we found Ancoats Hospital, a now delapidated building, but as is my way with all old buildings I like it, what would be good would be to go inside and see the what it's like. Doubtless you can see history within there of all the changes to the building since it was built. It now stands there awaiting demolition probably for some more apartments; you never know perhaps the new Islington Wharf is something to do with it, as this is very close.
