An urban researcher in Yorkshire, England, found a “time capsule” in an abandoned house that had not been touched for 19 years.
Daniel Sims of West Yorkshire found a number of obsolete items belonging to the landlord. And the plants growing on the walls were visible.
The property, which Sims, 32, entered through an open window, once belonged to a woman named Ann, who lived alone in the house after her husband died. According to Jam Press, he died in 2003.
Since his death, the house has been in ruins, and all his property is still inside.
Sims took the audience inside and traveled around the house on YouTube with other research friends. During the tour, they found a wooden cupboard filled with letters. At the top of the closet are family photos with clear layers of dust.
In the video, Sims said, “What is left behind here is very crazy.” “It’s very sad to think that if you die and there’s no one here to take your property, everything is left.”
Coats were still hanging in the hallway, toothbrushes were in the bathroom, and dishes were piled up in the kitchen.
It seems that vandals entered the house earlier because graffiti was painted on the walls.
Black and white photos appear in one of the bedrooms. Old inscriptions, shoes, and other items that Sims describes as a “time capsule” appear and point out that there have been no renovations to the house since the early 1990s.
He also found the 2002 Daily Mirror and several Christmas cards.
Sims and his friends describe the camp as a “house of grief” because its condition has deteriorated and there is no one left to take care of it.
“A wave of excitement has passed over me,” he said [as we entered] Because it was the first time I saw a place called a time capsule and take a look at someone’s life, ”Sims explained.
“From Anna’s life, from the pictures to the bathroom fixtures and her teeth, it was pretty scary,” Sims said. “Old ornaments and his clothes still hung in the wardrobe and in old letters written and received. The kitchen was still full of unused and rotten food, indicating that the property had suddenly been emptied and left alone.
He continued: “The house upstairs itself collapsed and was destroyed due to the occupation of nature, it was very strange to see these memories and life laid out so openly and naked, and to see that this place was left behind. It was very sad. It was rotting and rotting. ”
