KILLING TIME

Former Berkshire Knitting Mill

While waiting for my Wife to get her treatment on her legs, I decided to take a short run over to what used to be the mighty Berkshire Knitting Mill complex. There have been many changes here over the years since the Knitting Mills went out of business. Now, this huge building that once made underwear, and many other different types of hosiery for ladies is now a branch of the Reading Hospital named Tower Health. All of the other buildings in this big complex have now been changed to either one business or another. There are 6 different buildings. One of them is now a Deluxe Apartment building.

Leaving the Tower Health building, I ventured over to the Reading Public Museum grounds to see what’s new. Nothing really different. Just thought I’d share the one bridge that cross’s the creek. The weather was cloudy and threatened rain at any time.

The Museum has many different types of flowers scattered around the area. This is just one of them I noticed that was colorful.

I think these are Dogwood.

Another thing that is located in the area is Sculpture. There are a number of different types that artists have made and put on display. This one is named Stainless Steel. When we had those huge rains last year, this sculpture was washed way down stream about a mile away. It was recovered and remounted on it’s stand. I’m not really a big fan of Modern Sculpture, so I stood here trying to figure out what the artist is trying to show. To me, it’s just some Stainless Steel welded together. For what? Guess that beauty is only in the eyes of the beholder.

Thank you for stopping by.
