These tentacles come from the bowels of the earth not the nearby ocean. World War II Air Force Pilots would wait here in the underground rooms the tunnels connect to. – ready to disembark at a moments notice. This building with its central body, and tunnel tentacles is known as “The Octopus” Limbo Series. World War II buildings in waiting. Stephenville, Newfoundland. Copy right Christine Montague.

  1. Great picture. I love the rust and peeling paint. Definately a great shot.

    • I’m glad you appreciate this photo. It is quite the odd looking building with its tentacles & doors at the end. I believe it goes quite a few stories down, but haven’t researched this yet. Quite the opposite to the remarkable lighthouse mentioned on your blog. I love the spiral paint job. I just visited an incredibly restored limestone lighthouse in Rose Blanche, Newfoundland. The location will be subject of some of my future paintings. I picked up a local magazine – it’s cover story – over 900 lighthouses for sale in Canada!
