Jamestown, New York has a few claims to fame. It was home to the actress Lucy Desi from the “I love Luci” Show as well as a hub for industry. If you were to visit this town now however, industry is not what you will see.It has gone down hill drastically from the bombing industry days. This is relatively sad since many of the “Mom & Pop” shops struggle whilst big businesses move in. Having said that one of my favorite hobbies it to just walk around with my camera and photograph old things. I can’t help wonder if I should have been born in a different time period. Ever wonder that?
I also wonder what this town looked like in the old days. As it
sits now the industry has long since gone from our town and migrated to
Rochester, New York. As I stated all the old buildings sit here decaying little by little. I have to say I love photographing it though.
Rust, decay, broken glass, mess, moss, Oh these things call my photo lens!
Even as a back drop this area photographs well.
What do you think?
It is so sad this town has really started to run down.
Some of these factories are now condemned and some have been torn down.
I find the older buildings have character as opposed to the modern ones you can find a dime a dozen. Even though they are long past their prime I hope I captured some of their beauty before they are all torn down.
Do you have old buildings in your town?
Do you ever visit them?
I wish I knew more about this building.
What was it at one time? Any thoughts?
