this photo made me feel so sad. Melancholy drags us down. sometimes these photos bring a lump to the throat for times gone by. seeing these pleasure halls in ruins is like seeing your memories smashed. (perhaps it better not to look?) (now I REALLY am feeling melancholic. (will be quoting poetry next) "if men could learn from history, what lessons it would teach us. But passion and party blind our eyes, and the light which experience gives is a lantern on the stern which shines only on the waves behind us" Samuel Taylor Coleridge. 1772.
