(Just want to say here before you start reading my thread, I have shocking spelling, it was never my strong suit and still is not!. So please don't
nit pick i get enough crap as it is from friends and family!. Thank you.)
This is my second thread i have made and i did use the search function and could not find this posted, so here it goes.
I came across this article on facebook actully and i got really stuck into it.
Mary Mallon (above, right) was the most infamous patient at North Brother Island where she spent nearly three decades of her life.
I had never heard of North Brother Island before and the going on's there. It was a place which people with infectious and fatel diseases through out
the 19th - 20th century. there is a interesting snip it of the famous Typhoid Mary who lived and worked on the Island.
People who have been here said it is ver ysimilar of that of the Black Hole of Calcutta, and by the sounds of it was not a very nice place to end up
back in those times that is for sure
(Ok ive tried really hard to figure out how to copy the text from the article using the quote and Ex-Text button but can only seem to copy one
sentance will keep it just incase it does work
Anywhoo i made this thread about the Amazing Picture's that accompany the article. The Island has been left to rott, but it makes for amazing
pictures, and how the people of this place just up and left. It blows my mind how nature can so quickly ruin which once was a really nice (well not so
much the nature of the place with all the diseasesand such) island, with hospital, school, living quarters for the Doctors and Nurses and now some of
the place are almost unreconizable
