Abandoned Shoe Factory
Unfortunately, I can’t really offer much in the way of the history of this Abandoned Shoe Factory. I shot this site in 2011, not long after I began photographing abandoned buildings.
Seika Dormitory was constructed in the middle of Tokyo in 1927 to house predominantly Taiwanese students studying at the nearby Takushoku University.
The O-I Glass site was originally built around 1880, and part of the plant is still in operation today producing glass bottles.
Geelong B Power Station
Geelong B Power Station was opened in 1954 and for a time was the largest power station in Victoria. Originally fired by brown coal, it was eventually converted to be fuelled with briquettes, transported from the Latrobe Valley.
Bradmill Denim was the first time I had ever (allegedly) entered and abandoned property to take photos, not long after I first bought my camera while we were living in Melbourne.
