Last time I drove past here, Foster's was still manufacturing toothpicks, clothespins, tongue depressors, spools and other do-dads made of wood. Now, just a few years later, it's yet another abandoned rural mill.

I think it's rather depressing to see all the abandoned sites like houses, factories and other buildings.

A dramatic & beautiful one. And this sky makes it feeling depressing. Thanks for this one. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Wonderful through the window capture. I particularly like the cracked upper windows.

Love your view thru the window. Sad to see such wonderful buildings no longer used.

you seem to try door knobs frequently, should we worry about you?

actually, I had to climb though a broken window to get into this place - all the doors were boarded up!

Fantastic perspective. Also, you seem to have a way with skies - I especially like how this one is menacing, yet there's plenty of sun on the building.

I like this guy of urban exploration --don't usually have the nerve to go in with my good camera though.

A place to my liking. Even though these places is exciting to visit. It's still sad how it affects many people when they have to close down. Lot's of unemployment and whole society's practically dies.
