Time Capsule Antique Shop - Epic Abandoned Exploration!

Full & detailed exploration of an amazing antique shop in Germany! This place has so MUCH stuff in it! And everything is covered in a gentle blanket of dust ...
Larkworthy Antfarm's insight:

 

More a mauseoleum than an antique shop! I could hear the footsteps of ghosts behind me, the breath of the dead on the back of my neck. Tell us more of this antique dealer's story! The cataloguing of the items (the egg cup room, the sanctuary of dead crucifixes, candlesticks, clocks, plates, and crystal), the placement of items, the sheer mass...incredible to see such a thing. Unbroken piquette assiette. Folk art. Eeriest Urbex video ever!

While restoring one of the exploration huts in Antarctica, Conservators of the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust discovered a box that turned out to be a remarkable treasure. It contained 22 never-before-seen cellulose nitrate negatives documenting the life of Antarctic explorers a 100 years back. Preserved in a block of ice, these negatives surprisingly lived up to our days to shine a light on the Antarctic heroic era and the landscape itself.

A history of Edinburgh's vaults and south bridge
Larkworthy Antfarm's insight:

An "air of claustrophobia, fear and mistrust" permeated the underground vaults of 18th century South Bridge in Edinburgh.  Built to expand the business districts of the city in the 18th century, the underground passages leaked and became dark shadowy places, the home of the poor and downtrodden, damp rooms filled with unsavory characters...only uncovered in the 1980s.   Ghosties and goblins underfoot.
