AWESOME pics there. As a teenager it was all the rage to bust into old abandoned mills around here - there's plenty of them still. All my buddies wanted to trash the place, but I was always fascinated by the machinery, construction, and old cans, bottles, papers and other artifacts I'd find in there. Closest we can ever get to going back in time.
Looking at all those pics now just makes me sad. That's America's legacy right there - neglected ... wasted ... decaying into nothingness. Think of all the jobs that place provided. All the vendors that made a living supplying that breaker with goods ... the truckers & railroad engineers that hauled that coal out of there. The MILLIONS of dollars that place pumped into the economy. What a shame.
