End of an Era

At several points over the years I have found myself out with the tripod taking pictures of the old abandoned Gates Rubber Plant on South Broadway.  A few months ago, I decided I had better get my fill of pictures of the old factory as it might not be there long.  It proves I was right.  I noticed the other day that demolition has started.  I have to say it makes me sad.  There is so much character and history in that old building in ruins (not to mention the jobs that were lost when they closed it down!).

You can see more photos of it on my stock photo site.
