The following series of pictures are from an on going project. Over the past 5 years I have been documenting what is left of the industry boom from WWII and prior as well as the Railroad in the Midwest "Rust Belt". The purpose of the project is to document all structures vacant or in production before they are destroyed by the changing of times. Industry is a Midwest heritage and one day it will be but a memory and strip malls or vacant lots will sit where great factory's once stood. All history is worth preserving. Even if it's After The Industry Left.
