Armour Exteriors

On one’s approach, the vast, rotting campus of the Armour plant seems a lost Shangri-La. The twin smokestacks are the guiding beacon, the buildings themselves being lost from view in the foliage. When the factory walls finally loom into view, crowded with trees and mad with ivy, the entire edifice seems like a ship lost in storm, slowly being dragged under by the verdant waves.




From inside, one is a witness to a shipwreck, albeit one unfolding in glacial, almost epochal, time, though no less sure of its final destruction for its torpor.

  1. Phenomenal, sir. First picture is intriguing; I want to see more. Second photo is eerily similar to one of the Call of Duty zombie levels…. the mental hospital one. Amazing shot, I could stare at that all day.

  2. Hey TR – I’m close to finishing up a piece on the Armour meat packing plant. Would you allow me to use your images with full credit to you? Thanks!
