Addington Childrens Hospital

Addington Childrens Hospital has been sitting deserted on the Durban Beachfront for a number of years now. Last year some fellow photographers and myself went in to the derelict building with our cameras to see what it looked like inside.

The hospital as it looked in 2009. I think a fence or wall has been put up since so this picture isn't so easy to get now.

This is typical of the condition of the building inside.

There are some quite interesting art built in to the building. Their are stain glassed windows in some places.
Little Tommy Tittlemouse

In a central courtyard there is this statue/water feature.
Sister Water

There are also colourful murals painted on the walls.

Discarded toys litter the corridors.
The Demise Of The Pink Panther

Who knows if there is a light at the end of the tunnel for this fascinating old building?
