Thanks to the 1984 Facebook Page I was directed to some hauntingly beautiful photography by Thomas Schultz from his Flickr page. He has a quite a few taken from an abandoned arcade in I assume Arizona if I’m reading his tags properly as well as photos from a forgotten cafe and schoolroom amongst the other 21,818 photos he has posted.
These pictures invoke a strong emotional response and I’ve looked through them for over a week now but just today I noticed the sign in the photo of the burnt Zaxxon arcade cabinet.
Games People Play is the first arcade that popped up in my neck of the woods, it didn’t last long at all because a Showbiz Pizza opened up the street but I was under the impression that G.P.P. was not a chain. Doing a little research shows that there used to be one a couple of hours from where I live but is now closed and nothing else pops up. So if you have any information about that please let me know and make sure to visit the link up top to see even more wonderful photography by Thomas Schultz.
