The School for the Special Salmon Part V

The last part of my exploration begins in the second floor of the last, undiscovered wing. This was something I hadn’t found in any other part of the building: a room with inner glass walls. Let’s have a closer look behind the sofa. The sign says: ”Emergency exit. The route must remain unblocked”. Someone didn’tJatka lukemista ”The School for the Special Salmon Part V”

Like I said earlier, this wasn’t one of the most interesting buildings to photograph. There was just lots and lots of empty space. But every now and then something came up. The room was otherwise completely empty. And then in one corner there was a huge pile of party magazines for the True Finns, backJatka lukemista ”The School for the Special Salmon Part IV”

Next I arrived in the main lobby. I took these pictures in September, but somehow they had already braced for the coming winter. In Finland we always joke about old people trying to use kicksleds in as little snow as possible. Wonder, where grandpa’s tried to go this time. Let’s have a look at theJatka lukemista ”The School for the Special Salmon Part III”

As you can see from the picture, the power is on. This is the only abandoned house I’ve ever been to, which wasn’t completely abandoned. Boxers were training here even while I photographed. And yes, I did promise some surprises. Well, let’s see what we find if we follow that arrow. All right, it seemsJatka lukemista ”The School for the Special Salmon Part II”

The School for the Special Salmon Part I

Because of my work I got involved with a building project. It was about demolishing an old school and some adjacent tree houses and replacing them with modern high rise blocks of flats with a nice view over a river. The school was from the 1960’s, a very unspectacular building with a red brick facade.Jatka lukemista ”The School for the Special Salmon Part I”

The Quiet School by the Market Square Part XI

There was a third staircase in the back of the wing which housed the three gymnasiums. This was far smaller and more difficult to access than the two main staircases, but we used this one to go down to ground floor, as we hadn’t been here yet. We left the stairs at the first floorJatka lukemista ”The Quiet School by the Market Square Part XI”

Here’s another collecion of pointless sentences together. ”Rescue my guinea pig! Please” ”Yeah, Yo Man” The biggest sentence on the blackboard is Swedish, and says that you can’t eat that much, while the old sign begs for silence. In addition to the collection of birds featured in an earlier post, the school had a collectionJatka lukemista ”The Quiet School by the Market Square Part X”

The journey through the school has been really interesting, and it has gotten more and more interesting the higher the stairs we have climbed. The lower floors were just full of stockpiled stuff or empty classrooms, but the upper ones are in a much more authentic shape. It’s almost as if schoolwork had stopped justJatka lukemista ”The Quiet School by the Market Square Part IX”

In this class we can see the grim reality of the school’s digitalization. It’s no wonder there were so many floppy discs in the school, as the computers were this old. I think that one might still run Windows 3.1. It looks like someone’s been training to write with their toes.

The fourth floor corridor was pretty much like all the previous ones. The long metal bars have been used to hang large charts to the front of the class. I hope the teacher was away, when they came down. The blackboard had been removed, but was still in the class. A strange display had beenJatka lukemista ”The Quiet School by the Market Square Part VII”
