Sorry for obscuring pictures with my name, but other unique
photographs of mine have turned up elsewhere. Thanks to Phil Davies
once again for sharing many of his photographs with me.
I have assembled this full set in one place, as this was a set taken on one day in the life of the abandoned camp. Some of the pictures are duplicates. Descriptions if relevant are below the pictures.
