Gelderman & Zn.

16-02-02:
I
wanted to revisit the office building (see Abandoned:Jumbo) to take some better pictures of the main hall, to explore the large basement (I had brought garbage bags against wet feet) and to explore some places I thought I missed last time. Unfortunately, the door I used last time had been boarded up again. Probably for the best, it will keep the place from being smashed any further for a while longer. The second goal on my agenda was the last remaining part of the Gelderman factory just across the railroad tracks. This building proved to be satisfying exploration object.

View from the emergency staircase at the building to be explored.
Crossing the railroad tracks wasn't so difficult, but to get down on the other side I had to force my way through thorn bushes, which was no fun. Anyway, once there all doors were wide open (read 'non existent') for me to enter.


Yes I know, this doesn't fit on your screen. Gives an idea of the size of the main hall. It was used as a parking garage in the
discotheque days. Nowadays it would probably be better to park your car outside.


From the other side. It used to be three times as wide, but part of it was demolished to make room for a railroad viaduct. The right wall is clearly newer than the
left one.


I like this piece of graffiti.




For the category 'how did this get here?'; a shoe.

The inevitable chemical waste lying about.

Next hall. Left: outside, right: big hall in pictures above, straight ahead: stairwell and beyond that remnants of offices, next to that the elevator. I went straight ahead.
