except for the electrical fixtures and parking lot size, this could be a photo of any number of rusting, vacant buildings between Moscow and St Petersburg. Maybe a metaphor for the socialist-style squeeze, where life is taken from the creditworthy and distrbuted to the dead, such as AIG, Fannie Mae a number of banks.

The young man, with color and life left in his clothing and skin, looks forward but sideways to a future of assigned debt and uncertainty, on a platform supported by a rubber relic of the productive past, the wheel.

I really like this bldg, and until today I thought that the Print Works had been torn down. Any preservationists out there wanting to save it?

Thanks to LS for doing such a great job with a really interesting subject.

Bert,
Actually, the same developer who saved Revolution is planning to start work saving Print Works in the very near future.

Print Works is the Cone Mills plant I briefly worked in at the ripe old age of 18 until I made up my mind that mill life was not for me.
