Hobo Photo Of The Day


We walked about 12 kilometers south from the highway, to find our way into the abandoned Burwash Prison outside of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.

The prison had been abandoned since the late 1960’s but there was plenty of evidence of recent activity.

For years, people have been coming to this abandoned site to drinks and smoke, to tag the walls and see what they could steal.

Now the hallways are all empty. Littered with the memories of prisoners and vandals.

One man, must have sat in this room. There was a chair near the window surrounded by empty shell casings. Who knows what he could have been shooting at. Empty beer cans and dust lay around the room. The man’s life must have been a mess, but this is where he hung his shirt.
