Faded Glories

Whilst looking for something else completely, and not even for the apparently obvious key word, I ran across this set of photos taken at the abandoned works of George Barnsley & Sons, file maker, leather tool maker et cetera.

Sad, yes, but also oddly fascinating. Probably as good a flavour of a Sheffield tool works of the old school as any.

In the same photographer's photo sets is another place of galootish interest; Stanley Tool Works. To be honest I found that just plain depressing; enter at your own risk.
