Asbestos Built This Place

lindenwold-castle

This is an interior view of the Lindenwold castle located in Ambler,Pa.I took a few days off to seek out some photo subjects and stopped at the castle to see if I could snap some images.At first a friendly staff member escorted me to shoot yesterdays image outside but when we came back to the castle,she said I could photograph the upstairs by myself if I wanted.I was surprised by the offer and quickly jumped on the chance. The place was amazing and I could only imagine the elite figures from times past that gathered here to socialize. Off to the left is what she told me was called the blue room,which contrasted with the rich wood throughout this room. Dr Matteson’s fortune was made primarily by his work with asbestos.

  1. Great craftsmanship here, Donald. I can only image the time, effort and skill it took you to achieve this multitude of lighting perspectives.

    • Thank you.I was under the gun to get something before they changed their minds,so I only had my tripod and several exposures to work with. the window was extremely overpowering and had to be reigned in.
