Admiral's Row

There has been some debate as to whether Admiral's Row is worth saving. That the superstructures of the building are salvageable is beyond doubt, based both on my site visit, and upon the report of the National Guard (forthcoming in PDF). Here's a little peek at what the interiors look like:


First light breaking in Quarters G.


Quarters D, second floor stairs with view into common bathroom.


Same stairs as viewed from burnt-out attic.


Limp doorknob, Quarters E.


Common bathroom, Quarters G.


Ceiling detail, Quarters B.


Quarters B, spiral staircase to fourth floor.


Oculus in ceiling above same spiral staircase.

Check out further photos in upcoming blogs on this site, as well as on The Pasilalinic-Sympathetic Compass.

Amazing.
I'm from Australia and stumbled past Admiral's row last June without knowing anything about it, and was so completely intrigued. I hadn't been able to find out anything about the houses as I had no idea what to look for, and then my partner found a link on line.
Thank you so much for these interior photos, it still looks so beautiful. I hope they don't demolish, absolutely amazing.

boy, the military sure is adept at taking over and then neglecting or finally demolishing architecturally significant buildings eg forest glen. altho they are trying to salvage what's left, many beautiful buildings were lost to decay, fire and vandalism. the same here in maine. at fort williams in cape elizabeth, vandals burned the commandants mansion, and then the army finally demolished all the victorian officers houses after leaving them to rot for 30 years. your tax dollars at work. as will rogers said, "its a good thing we don't get all the government we pay for"
