Sept 16 - " (Whatever) souls are made of, his & mine are the same."
Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
Since tonight is the season premiere of Boardwalk Empire, I decided to do my "whatever" picture of a house that is located right outside of town. Boardwalk Empire is a show on HBO that focuses on the life of Enoch L. Johnson who who rose to prominence and controlled Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s. He was also highly involved in the bootlegging trade. And I'm also a big Steve Buscemi fan! This house is said to be one of the hide outs for Al Capone, who also worked with Enoch L. Johnson. It's said he would travel south and smuggle drugs from the border and also liquor. It's also said that this house has an underground tunnel, which has been sealed off by a family years later. Basements are very rare around here so I think it's interesting to know one exists in a home around here. It's said he had several hideouts and a home here in our town. This house has been abandoned for years and in the front of the house was a sort of carriage house, which had a broken window and you could see all sorts of canned food on the walls. I was too scared to go near it and grass was very tall! Also it was around noon, couldn't get the sun flares out, but I also was very quick in driving in and taking pictures! Kinda made me uncomfortable!
