    Wi-Ma Cotton factory is one of the several abandoned redbrick factories located in my industrial hometown - Lodz. Most of them were built during the most intense industrial development of the city between 1870-1890. Wi-Ma was established in 1879 closed in 2009, is one of the oldest factories in Lodz, part of Heinzl and Kunitzer cotton industry complex. According to city development plans it will be turned into art museum/ studio.
    I went there in the summer, managed to get inside the main building, which was quite lucky becauce place was well secured at this time. Explored 3 floors and the basement. I've been to other redbrick factories before and this one, I must say is still in the pretty good state. unfortunately none of the original cotton - spinning machinery left.
