Thanks for the comment on my BADP blog regarding the church photo. Actually, I post Churches of France/Paris each Sunday on Paris THrough My Lens. I'm almost out of church photos ( how could that have happened, I saw so many!) but I might have another Sunday or two left.

So much change. So much has been lost.

I love old industrial architecture shots; was this taken recently, there seems to be something 'old' about the shot.

Ellie

We can tell this building saw many good and bad times. Wonderful American and NC touch and the monochrome helps us travel back in time.

Christine

I love these old buildings - especially good with the old lettering! Monochrome makes it look like an antique postcard.

Carver

Great shot. It takes me down memory lane and perfect for monochrome.

it must have been one of great building in its time...it gives one a nostalgic and almost melancholy feeling, maybe its just me...but great mono shot!

Oh it is such a beautiful old building. Do not give up hope we had the old Wentworth hotel in Newcastle, N.H. that was abandoned for years and was finally rebuilt.

What a great old building, I hope it can be preserved.

Hi,

My grandfather was the head miller there for most of his life. My uncle was the vice president. Since my grandfather lived over on Arlington street and was able to walk to work I spent many an hour there "helping" out. If you click on the "treasured place" link and scroll down to the wooden silos that have been opened up my father and his two brothers helped build those back in the 1930's. They are 2X12 laid on their sides and nailed together! There were iron bars that ran horizontally to tie the walls together to support the weight of the grain. I think that the Hilton family owned the mill and they or some of their family still live in Greensboro

Do you know about the Hilton family and where they may be now?
