Two Walking Figures
This was once one of many parking lots for a major manufacturing company with home offices in Torrington, CT. There were large manufacturing facilities in town and scattered across the country. About twenty-five years ago I did the photography for several "capability brochures" for this very company. There don't seem to be any capabilities left to brag about now. Looks like a skeleton crew is around to maintain the buildings, or perhaps serve some warehouse functions.
The large storefront below has been empty and apparently untouched for years. It sits at the main intersection of downtown streets in the small city of Meriden.
