Following the previous uploading, I think that I should show you around a bit the 'reality' inside the Workhouse. I'd heard a lot of stories about Workhouses before I visited this one. This is one of the most complete workhouses in existence in Britain, even though most of the rooms are empty. I guess that one is because of its history, second is that the developer was going to convert it into flats before the National Trust took over, most of the contents had been sold. The house became a shelter for unmarried mothers with child later, there is a room displayed in 60's style, some visitors spotted that they got date wrong on some of the items. The Workhouse was still in use in early 90's. Life had been improved a lot since Victorian time, but it was still far from ideal to bring up a child in the Workhouse. I'll upload some photos to show you what it was like in 60's on Workshop for you to have a look. Thanks for looking.
BTW, Thanks to Gert for his helpful critique on my previous uploading.

bella foto testimonianza, ho visitato luoghi simili e la curiosità si mescola allo sgomento per le condizioni di vita che subivano i frequentatori di questi luoghi.
Ottimo scatto, ben utilizzata la luce proveniente dalle grandi finestre.

Not a very nice place to be with their harsh conditions and equally harsh rules. You present us with an interesting documentary image taken from a good angle and ideally exposed.

I understand from your note that nobody lives here anymore, so then I guess these beds are carefully kept unmade, to give visitors a better idea of what it looked like when this room was full of unmarried mothers and their children. It's like a pen still lying exactly where the famous writer dropped it before dying. You used the light well and from your position in a corner (I suppose) we get a fair idea of the rather attractive architecture of this place.
