Inside of a dilapidated mausoleum in the Necropolis cemetery in Glasgow, Scotland. Unfortunately several of the historic structures in the Necropolis are in such a state. The age of the vandalism in this mausoleum (1971) shows that lack of respect for such sites is nothing new (though there is something intriguing about old graffiti and in some historic ruins I’ve seen graffiti from the 19th century carved onto walls or wooden doors). The entrance to this mausoleum is now covered by locked iron bars.
