The Horror, The Horror! Books Left for Dead in Abandoned Schools
Community at Work by Stephanie. Philadelphia, 2011.
In an era when most schools and kids have glaring book needs it is an utter tragedy to witness these images. All taken within the last five years and all depicting complete neglect. The breakdown of communication somewhere along the line that allows these books to go to an early death without being utilized somewhere is unconscionable. Granted some of the books might be outdated but they still could be of some use to the book artists.
All images gleaned from the 5,550+ photos in the Abandoned Schools group on Flickr.
