Winter Tale

So there has been this giant, gleaming white factory near the downtown of the city I was born and raised in, and sometimes leave Pittsburgh to visit it for my university breaks. That place has always scared me my entire life, since yes, it has been broken down for the past 21 years or so, and one day this week I decided to wander on in.

 

It was a creepy mix of early 1920s almost luxury in its public rooms, and offices, which had dark mahogany paneling, but of course, as all places that update, the sixties and seventies hit hard, and this is what happened to its lobby.
