Clare Carrier  Originally from South Africa 🇿🇦 but currently in London 🇬🇧

An abandoned home in Kolmanskop. Kolmanskop was founded in 1908 after the discovery of diamonds in the area. The town was built in the architectural style of a German town - it had a hospital, ballroom, school, skittle alley, theatre, sports hall, casino, an ice factory and also the first x-ray facilities in the Southern Hemisphere. It was connected to the nearby town of Luderitz by rail.
By the end of World War I the supply of diamonds was depleting and the town started to decline. It was abandoned in 1954 and this is when the sand started to take over. Nowadays the sand is knee deep in some of the properties.
