Years ago, when travelers flew into Birmingham, their airplane flight path regularly approached and flew directly over Carraway Hospital. From one’s seat on the plane, you often felt you could reach out and touch Carraway’s iconic revolving “blue star.”
For residents of Birmingham – you were home.
Carraway Hospital has been abandoned for nearly a decade.
This weekend, some local photographers, including Bham Now’s Larry O. Gay, visited the historic hospital in the Norwood neighborhood which closed its doors in 2008.
Will Carraway’s blue star revolve again?
Here are photos from this weekend.
