Jesus Christ! What a fantastic photo thread.

I know a town that use to look so much like this.

I love the photo with the different colored smoke stacks. What is that, Artistic industrialism?

HOLY GEES! That's lots and lots of CO2 right there! And I love the look of industry! It's very intricate and cool looking. But I hate the contamination.

I LOVE this picture. It's awesome that if they can't save the environment they can at least make it a more colorful place:

That's the very first thing that came to my mind.

Best thread I've seen in a long time. It's good to see cities actually making things.

Great pics, industrial landscapes are pretty interesting in their own way, and you have a good eye for it.

The coloured smokestacks are from National Steel Car, they make rail cars. I know a person whose husband works there and told me why for those coloured stacks.

The painter asked the company what particular colour that they wish to paint the smokestacks and they didn't care. So the painter who is gay decided to use the colour of the rainbow. Interesting story huh?! lol

Nice job flar!


This factory, Rheem, is closing soon (or is it already closed?). Guess why? It's a familiar story in USA.....opening up a factory in Mexico instead.

Great shots and wonderful idea for a thread! The real gutts of what makes a city function, but often overlooked or not thought about unless you work there. Thanks for the continued posts!
