I am not an urban explorer or hunter for lost places, but ironically due to my work I have access to an abandoned military building. The buildings in this complex are not really abandoned. They were used by the Republic of China Air Force (ROCAF) until around 2010. After the ROCAF left the buildings have been repurposed for civilian use. Honestly I don’t know much about the purpose of the buildings there. For sure it was something technical and not combat stuff. One of the buildings contained something like power supply units or so. There are still parts left that look like something you would see in an electrical substation. The largest of the buildings looks interesting because it is about five stories high but has no windows. It looks like a huge hall that was filled with some equipment. The photos I took are from the building where the guards were stationed. Even though everything from its past usage was removed, there is still a lot of old stuff left that can tell stories about the work and live of the people there. I took a couple of photos to share here. And I am planning to take a few more sometimes later this year.

In one room are many desks and in one of the drawers I found this hat.
One drawer was full with keys. I assume they belong to all the desks and lockers there. One set was particularly interesting with these two special keys.
There is also a gun cabinet that is more like a safe. One door had this combination lock and …
… the other door of the gun cabinet had a combination lock made by Rolex. I wonder if this is legit.
Old refrigerator from Tatung. Would be cool if someone could tell from the model number how old it is.
The photograph is a small gift from a wedding. In Taiwan it is common to give wedding guests small photos as a memory. From the clothing and hairstyle of the couple I would guess it is from the late 1990s.

  1. Interessante Einblicke in einen speziellen Bereich der jüngeren Vergangenheit Taiwans. Das sieht aber alles doch noch recht funktionsfähig aus.
