This is just a gallery of the interesting or photogenic stuff. I wanted to take advantage of the rare chance granted me - how often does a man get to photograph awesome game hardware covered in mud?
For the story behind all this, click here. Most of what you see here was thrown away, with cables harvested by recyclers within hours, consoles and computer equipment slowly disappearing day after day while the pile sat on the sidewalk rotting before city council came to get it.
Most of it either couldn't be reclaimed or wasn't worth it. Some of it was saved, some of it was preserved as-is to mark the occasion.
