Well, I hope that all of you out there have had a very filling and enjoyable Thanksgiving.  I sure did.  I always eat to much!

So, this is a re-post on the old building that I shot in the Coal Mining town of Shenandoah, PA.  I really did not like the other Image of it, so I’ve edited the photo to make it look better.  What I did was take out allot the the darn wires that I dislike in my photo’s.  I also took out the distracting telephone pole that was on the left corner.  I took out some of the weeds left growing around the building.  This one I like better.

This old building has been here for a long time.  It has a weathered look to it.  I never could find out what it was or used for.  In my opinion it might have been a ice storage place or something close.  A factory that produced something years ago and employed many people.  Wish I could have gained access to the inside to see what’s in there.  Just to find out what it was.  There are many buildings in Shenandoah that are like this.  It’s a old Coal Mining town, so much of what used to be is no more since Coal is no longer King.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

  1. Coming three years late to the game, but this is the old Swift Meat Packing Plant. Just last month it was finally razed, (it already started to collapse like many buildings in Shenandoah). The Lehigh Valley RR ran behind the building, in fact the medical is on the site of the former Lehigh Valley passenger station. In it’s heyday, Shenandoah hosted no less than three railroads, the Pennsylvania, Lehigh Valley and Reading railroads.

    1. Nick – Thanks for your information on that old building. I have visited Shenandoah a number of times in the past because it is such a Historic Coal town. My wife is from Minersville, PA and she is the one who started me in Coal History. When I took that Image, I always wanted to know what it was & why it was left abandoned. I must return to the town soon.
