Through the Portal

Yesterday, I showed a portal under part of New Hampshire’s former state psychiatric society. My friend, Teri, asked if I could take her through the portal to see the other side. Luckily, I have those images on file. This is from the part of the hospital building that housed people who had been convicted of a crime but were also in need of mental health care. That part had the same security as a prison of those times. Most of the rest of the former hospital, while dated, is more welcoming with open airy areas, murals and without the barbed wires and high walls.
