Yep, I agree with Spad. It says "母", which can mean female or mother. But it just doesn't make sense to write this character on the wall. Feels more like vandalism than anything connected to worship. As a Chinese person, I don't understand why that was written on the wall. Were there any other similar markings in the chapel?

Why go to such elaborate detail outside? They could have restored it enough to not be an eyesore and spent a little money to attempt preserving the interior.

Brewery-turned-apartments sound like my kind of place! I hope the same could be done to save this building. And they should fix the neon sign too.

Wow, so many big huge monitors! Love the lavender wall paint.

I suppose you can actually get one made by a tailor, or DIY enthusiast. Doesn't look that complex.
It's very sad that these are still used on people today. I have a friend who visited a mental institution in recent years. She said it is not the kind of place she would visit again ever.

So very excited to see a new gallery! I have been lurking in your site for years. Just want to say thank you because I immensely enjoy the photographs and your snippets of writing. I especially love the Kirkbride hospitals and asylums, keep coming back to look at them. PS I hope my small financial contribution helped maintain the site. I love this place.

It's just common practice to avoid numbers of bad omen, even in today's world. My guess would be that there was never a patient #666. Just like buildings missing the 13th floor. (In china it's usually the 4th & 13th floor missing in commercial buildings. 4 sounds like death or die in chinese)

Anyway, sorry to post dribble in an old gallery. Saw the updates, glad you're back!
