Abandoned Places – Fort Worth, TX (Dec 12) – part 4

Sorry folks, I would have posted these photos almost two weeks ago, but I got called away on a very short notice business trip. That also why several moderated posts didn’t get approved till this morning.

Location #3 – The Swift Meat Packing Complex

It was hard to find a wall or surface that didn’t have a fresh coat of paint. If anything, as discouraged as it should be, the paint sealed walls were actually better preserved and wear was limited in those areas. That said tagging is a felony in some areas.

Looking out from Cold Storage #2, we decided to move inward and check several of the other buildings in the complex.

This was part of a grinder used to make bone meal

Chutes to drop freshly ground bone meal into different (now gone) bins

Other buildings in the complex we didn’t get to. This was where they made Dial Soap. You do know that what soap is made from right?..

Tracks to nowhere photo DSC06261FCa.jpg
Tracks to oblivion

Follow the Red Brick Road photo DSC06256FCa.jpg
Follow the Red Brick Road – In my minds eye I could see dozens of workers pushing carts and racks with slabs of meat and dollies filled with other products being moved from building to building or being loaded onto refrigerated railcars.

Many thanks to my partner “Ro” for accompanying me on this exploration. I will be back.
