    I'd say he looks more like a Henry.

    It's not symmetrical and it seems like each section has a different design, almost looks like a building salad strung together.
    Failure is not defeat unless you stop trying.

    Looking at the pattern of red bushes on the top of the photo makes me think the upper wing was destroyed/burnt and then replaced with a smaller, disimilar wing. Kirk's don't need to be symmetrical really, just styled after the central core with meandering wings concept.

    Yes, that is in fact a Kirkbride. It had it's wing clipped some time in the mid 20th century. I'm pretty sure that the Kirk building is still active though. There are however other vacant buildings on the property. There were two Kirk-like buildings on either side of the Kirk. One has been torn down, the other is still there, though in pretty rough shape.

    There are plenty more photos of this hospital, but they have the name on them, and I'm too lazy right now to remove it. There should be some stuff in L3 about this place.

    You are correct sir I was looking at this building for a while and I was thinking it was a kirk, but didn't find it anywhere, until i check kirkbridebuildings.com, but it certainly is a kirk, and it is active, of the other two mini-kirks the one thats still there looks kinda fun. Awesome images though, I wasn't able to find the historical stuff at all...
