An Industrial past

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This old industrial type building is largely unaltered and is possibly one of the oldest buildings in this village..I have researched the history of this place and it appears that some industrial process occurred..The locality was infamous for the production of Alum, a mordant once used in the manufacture of dyes for the clothing and leather industries during the latter half of the second millennium.

Beautiful Shot!

A very pleasant place. It seems that the modern and flashy world did not come here - and let it remain as long as possible. I see very interesting photos in your gallery, the compositions which are for me favorites. like

Greetings from Poland - Zygmunt
