Gray Dunn were a Kinning Park-based biscuit makers, the firm was founded in 1853.The company put up a factory in Stanley Street in 1882 after being granted Royal Appointment by Queen Victoria That building was destroyed by fire 13 years later but a replacement was built on site. Gray Dunn’s continued making biscuits, cakes and breads until 1912 when the firm was sold to the Bilsland Bakery. The company went into receivership on the 29th June 2001 leading to 300 staff being made redundant and the factory became abandoned.

sweet :) had a peek at this last year but could get far due to the local rozza's taping it off as a "unsafe building"

Looks like it has real potential. Take more photos of signs and less of broken computer monitors!
Well the thing is i like to take pictures of what i want to and not what others think. I'm not really thinking about what everyone else wants at the time, im just enjoying myself but cheers.

That's your defence maybe, but look at the bigger picture. You can photograph what you want, but that doesn't necessarily mean people want to see it. Speed was correct to a degree, but really lets have more shots of the fabric of the building, the original fittings and signs etc. People can see ruined monitors anywhere, there's nothing remotely interesting or unique about them, they could happily be disposed of and the building would actually be better for it.

Let me be free to do what i want. I understand not everyone wishes to look at certain things, i say pay no attention to it if you dont like it and dont get so bothered about such a little thing.
