Abandoned Factory

This photo is of the old Lever plant down at the Don Valley and the Lakeshore in Toronto that made soap and other stuff, such as Ponds Cold Cream. The union employees that used to work there wanted the usual big raises, regardless of how the company was doing and decided to go out on strike. The strike lasted many months and finally the company had to close down the plant and move somewhere else, laying off the entire work force. I’m sure the ex-union-employees are all much happier unemployed than working for high wages and great benefits. That’ll show those corporate fat cats who runs the show. 🙂

    I so would want to get inside of the factory to take photos! Great treatment. It looks like a setup for an old movie that is going to introduce the evil industrialists either in old New York or London.

    Ooooooh, so dramatic and foreboding! The tower against that sky – incredible! Definitely the kind of place where the villains of Gotham City would hang out…
