Carleton Villa was designed by architect William Miller in 1894 for William O. Wyckoff, who made his fortune helping the Remington Arms Company develop a market for the typewriter. The grand estate was originally designed as a summer residence & a spot for large entertaining. Located on Cartleton Island where Lake Ontario flows into the St. Lawrence River, this was once the grandest estate in the Thousand Islands. Carleton Villa has not been inhabited for more than six decades, but its fading facade remains majestic even set behind a fence and barbed wire, its towering turrets covered in cobwebs, its once stately walls the victim of vandals despite the ‘Keep Out’ signs posted around the property

Boys walk past unclaimed human skulls and skeletons inside a common grave at a cemetery in Las Pinas, Metro Manila. All Souls’ Day in the Philippines, known as Araw ng mga Patay - and All Saints’ Day are the two most important days in the Filipino calender. There are at least 100 burials held here every week. According to a cemetery worker, the unclaimed skulls and skeletons are placed in a common grave after their ‘lease’ is finished to make way for more graves.
