Wake Up Early, Explore Abandoned Buildings

Woke up before sunrise to meet up with Jason and explore a building that has been on our 'to do' list for far too long. During the late 1800s and early 1900s Cleveland had a booming garment industry and this 650,000 square foot factory was a driving force in that industry. The building is pretty empty today, but the view from the roof is worth the price of admission. 

I really didn't take too many photos of the inside. It's a pretty typical early 20th century rustbelt factory. Mushroom columns and large open rooms on top of large open rooms.

The building boasts two massive courtyards. 

There's also tunnels running beneath the complex.

I probably should have shot more photos but sometimes it just feels good to explore and look around without worrying about the lighting and setting up shots. Hopefully this won't be the last time I'm in here, but even if it is I'm glad that I can cross this place off of my list.

Photos taken with a Canon 60D, with a Canon 35mm f/1.4 and Rokinon 8mm Fisheye lens.
