From Ritz to Rubble

This is all that remains of the main hall at West Park asylum, a burnt out shell after a fire in 2003. With a loud generator and construction staff who seem to be working in all directions from here it’s not a very peaceful location even though it looks like it may be.

I can only imagine how this place looked when the hospital was functional, and exactly what it was used for. With a hospital that could cater for up to 2,000 patients perhaps it was a main canteen of some sort churning out meal after meal all day to various groups. If anyone happens to know, please feel free to drop a note in the comments.
