A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit and photograph the Lukens Steel Mill, an abandoned factory in southeastern Pennsylvania.
The American Treasure Tour Museum, located near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, is one of those wonderful roadside attractions that is worth going out of the way to find if you happen to be in the area.
The exhibition (if you can call it that) is rather hard to describe, beyond being a massive collection of stuff acquired over many decades by one wealthy man. Everything from vintage cars to cartoon figures, player pianos to Christmas kitsch, all stored with little organization, in an old tire warehouse.
Last month I broke quarantine for a day to go on a socially-distant, masked, small-group photoshoot in a 19th century woolen mill in southern Pennsylvania. While the building appears to be from the latter part of that century, the equipment in place looks to be more recent, maybe from the 1930’s and 40’s.
Here are a few images from my day and more are in this gallery.
