Left Over Yarn



Yarn left over from when the mill closed. It has been rummaged through and picked over. Left for time to create its end. Never to be used for anything good.

One can only look and wonder why it's end must be this way…

Lonaconing Silk Mill




Front Entrance…

In July of 1957 the workers of this silk mill went on strike for higher wages. The company was already having money problems and decided to just close its doors and shut down the mill.

Workers were not allowed to go in and get their personal item and, for the most part, they are still there. It is like entering a time portal to get back in time.

Nine more photos will follow showing what the mill was like back in 2013 when I, and a few others, were allowed to go in and photograph all we wanted anywhere we wanted.
