Quotes in Park Station Concourse

Around the concourse are all kinds of spaces marked dining room, signal chamber etc and all the walls have rows of hand-painted tiles in Dutch - This one freely translates as:

 

"All the wine in the man leads to wisdom in the can"

 

 

These are a couple of photo's I snapped inside the Park Station Concourse yesterday. I do apologize for the quality. I went unprepared without adequate lighting or a tripod so there's a lot of noise and blur but I thought I'll upload it for those interested in Urbex . This borders on an Urbex site so I'm going to mark it as such. Malix, if you want me to delete the set, let me know.

 

It is largely abandoned and is only used occasionally - I got to know about it because heart-girls daughter-in-law is the events planner for a wedding that will be held here later in the year. Jozi's Night of a 1000 Drawings also takes place here. It's in a sad state of neglect. Large portions of parquet flooring are missing, pealing paint, broken windows and fittings. I cannot imagine how such neglect is allowed to happen.

 

The article below shed some light on the history of this amazing space..
