WOOGAROO ASYLUM, originally uploaded by cnlizziebns.

I read this was the worst unit of its kind in its un enlightened hey day in Australia.

Woogaroo Asylum housed the poor, destitue, alcoholic, demented together with the criminally insane which would have been the case around the world in the 1800 and the word "lunatic" would not have been applicable to the majority of the people detained within these walls. The authorities of the day thought they were acting in the best interests of everyone no doubt.
Human history has been brutal. No doubt the human race is moving forward with its attitude to the human condition of those less fortunate. Years ahead I would like to hope for the sake of the young people inhabiting this little planet the human race continues to become more enlightened.
Places like this should be a reminder to move forward.
