Old Factory

It has some interesting architectural characteristics that weren't typical compared to the other factories in the area that i've been in. It was mostly empty- and also unlike most of those other places, there is rehab in it's future! :)

I looooved these exit signs, looked straight out of Rapture (bioshock) to me.

I've never seen this stuff before, but there was a lot of it (and it was all bright pink)

a communication/ordering system? http://www.deadmedia.org/notes/41/413.html

I'm not sure if it was used for that or as punched paper computer tape. Between punched cards and magnetic tape was paper tape with 5 or 8 holes. It's the right stuff, so if they had any kind of mini-computer or main-frame from the 70s then you could be looking at their software.

But given the friden business systems text printed on the side it's probably part of their communication / ordering system too :)

I'm reasonably sure it was punched tape for controlling an NC machinining system, probably a vertical mill.

Friden was the manufacturer of the Flexowriter, the most popular I/O device for paper tape, and of course the tape itself.

I did some Googling around and found that Friden Systems' "Tape Talk" was control software for the "WISC" Computer System. I've reached a dead end on the WISC system though.

Teledata's old TTYs used paper tape but they had more rows...7 or 8, I think. Ah, memories of telecomputing at 110 baud... ^o^

I'm madly in love in that up close shot of peeling blue paint. I want it as my background.

With the writing on the walls on the walls in the second picture, I believe that that is someone using the location for "Ghost Hunting".

The 330 cpm that read on their machine was supposedly caused by some of the items in the location, too low of a reading to be anything else.

Though I'm not entirely certain.

What an interesting building, and you got some really great shots!

I love the heart on the elevator in the third one...it's like the Elevator of Love or something, heh.

And, in the 20th picture, the "I'm hungry, I'm dirty, I'm tired, and I'm out of paint" cracked me up! :-)

Thanks for sharing these! Also, where is this building located?

Thank you! It was definitely weird to see a factory painted pink.

That was my favorite picture too! In terms of humor, at any rate. :)

Was that tree branch image burned onto the wall from radiation or was it just a really good mural?

hehe, no, it looked like a painted stencil to me~ prior to the place being abandoned too. It seemed as old as the paint around it- I just don't know why that room wasn't peeling and everything else was. Maybe the type of paint?

I agree, the EXIT sign appears to be beautiful industrial streamline design from what looks to be out of the 1930s!

as I said above, it's fine now. I was allowed into this place, as opposed to my more "illegal" entries in other places.

It was really a minor incident (nothing like a uranium mine or anything) and i was just explaining the markings on the walls compared to the history of the company that used the building. I seriously doubt there would be anything mutated.
