廢墟攝影 芳玉大酒家 Abandoned Night Club in front of Fengyuan Train Station,Taiwan

抬頭看被雨水洗刷的「芳玉大酒家」那幾個字,想起聽過的故事。

As I looked up, I could see the fading name of the abandoned Night Club:”Fang YuNight Club”. This name reminded me a couple of stories in this night club many years ago.

國中同學父親靠球鞋加工廠賺了錢,在賭場裡揮霍殆盡,躲債不知去向,同學母親改嫁,最後靠著父親在芳玉大酒家裡結識的後母努力持家,同學還是出國留學。

Father of my junior high school classmate made a lot money with sneakers factory business. And he’d lost everything in the local casino then disappeared.

Mother of my junior high school classmate escaped with another man. But his stepmother who worked in this night club as a hostess still saved enough money to send my classmate to study abroad.

另一個高中同學常在課堂上睡覺,聽說他晚上在酒家當少爺打工,還有個大他十歲的酒店小姐供他吃住與學費。

Another high school classmate was always sleeping in the class. There’s a rumor that he was working as a waiter in this night club at night and a hostess lady lived together with him.

如今,被遺忘的「芳玉大酒家」只剩幾個字,掛在被打掉牆壁的廢墟上,還有古意的「爆漿餡餅」攤在門口陪伴。

But for now,there’s only a pie vender to accompany with this old, abandoned night club building.

下次經過時,想嚐嚐餡餅,順便抬頭看看「芳玉大酒家」還剩下多少。

I might try some pie of this vender next time. And I hope “Fang Yu Night Club” was still there.
