You're Steel The One

The old Marshall Steel/Gerdau Ameristeel/Co Steel Recycling facility in Milton, abandoned for a good ten years now. Awesome condition.

Recent evidence shows that the place had some activity as recent as 2004. There's a few left over documents in the offices, but nothing concrete

It's all demolished now.

Talley Auto Defense Systems (Mesa, Arizona)

Talley Defense Systems was an auto-based facility where they tested cars for their safety features. As says the latest document that I could find, dated December 1999 -

This document describes the Talley Defense Systems (TDS) test procedure for conducting automotive airbag enhancer granule Lot Acceptance Testing (LAT) as open air tests in heavywall fixturing.

Abandoned Places – Lincoln Mill (follow-up shoot) – Nov 08

I meant to post these last week, but I was still too busy with community MX and watching the amazing posts many of you put up.

After Lincoln Mill ceased use as a missile and rocket research site, the building continued as an office complex, a light industrial complex, and storage site. In more than a few cases, goods and equipment were long forgotten.

My First trip! The Salton Sea.

So, prompted by a post here I went to the Salton Sea for my first abandonedplaces field trip. It was 400 miles from where I live (In San Francisco), and an LJ post happened to go out when a friend of mine would be going there as well! So we hooked up together with her friend Jeff, and after a short adventure that I won't post here, we ended up at the Salton Sea!

This is our second visitation of the day. An abandoned Spa/Dry Ice Factory! Not too clear on the history of it, I'll have to ask my friend again!

This is pulled from my LJ with more personal pictures taken out.
