Filene’s was a place I loved to go as a kid. Department stores back then were like a fantasy world full of beautiful, fancy things. This photo is of the original Filene’s department store left empty. Actually, the building is now demolished and scheduled to be replaced by a glass and steel behemoth that will be condominiums. As a lover of Boston’s old world architecture, I weep.
For some truly fantastic photos and stories of abandoned places, check out Abandoned Kansai. He’s also got amazing photos from North Korea.
