    Not sure waht this one was in it's heyday, but now a small portion of it is used for the manufactring of clothes. It looks to have been built in the late 1940's/early 1950's, and hgas remained virtually untouched sine that time.
    The manager of the small company operating in the factory could not understand why I wanted to climb the tower, and was suspicious. When he let me in and we walked through the disused corridors I was going "wow..." "Fuck!..." as I saw more and more original features. The only reason they have survived is that the company rent the building and have spent no money on it!
    I climbed gthe ladder to the roof, and had a good look at the clock from the outside. When I asked to climb the tower the guy said he had no idea where the steps would be. I worked it out, pushed a bit of plywood away from the doorframe and sure enough a iron ladder took me up. The clock still works and I took the liberty of winding it for them and setting the time:D

    I got the most dodgy look when I started photographing the 1970's fag machine! He could just not understand the attraction!
