The beautiful photo in the banner was taken before the fire. This part of the ALSTOM building was beautiful at night. For a factory, it actually sparkled. A really undiscovered gem of a place. Sadly, after the fire, the vivid colors are now gone. The 2nd photo was taken after the fire, spring/early summer of 2009. Windows were broken and though you don't see it in the photo, the place was a mess within the building beyond the windows.
A sorta magical place very people knew about but has vanished from the world. I'm glad I took some photos of it.
