    I had intended to pay a visit to a terminally ill fire station this eve', but the damn smashy-breaky machines were still hard at it until nightfall. So, a little roaming and I found access to (dah-dah-dah!) Machinagraph :cool:

    Pretty empty to be fair, but not a bad explore with a couple of machines still in situ and a room packed full of lovely knick-knacks.

    I have to admit to weeing my pants a little in here when a door slammed shut with gusto behind me and I dropped my camera in the dark. Pah, I blame Ghostbusters for ruining my 'dark spaces tolerance'. :gay

    A ickle history:

    Machinagraph was a manufacturer of nameplates, plaques and labels and also dabbled in chemical etching pretreatment services, aluminum, brass, bronze and copper chemical etching.

    The company is still alive-a-live-o (somewhere less pretty in the city) and this particular, rather lovely, read-brick built site closed in goodness-knows-when (internet fail)...but I'd estimate maybe 10 years (?) or so since.

    Anyhoo, nuff rammle. Here are some more of my questionable photos. I blame the door slamming incident for any blur.

    And, some silliness:

    I should add that the last shot cost me a bizarre bus ride home with small children staring. Always check for black rings after playing-dress up with filthy googles :(
