Abandoned factory (San Francisco)

The Washington Packing Corporation was a tuna canning factory and operated in the early 1960's, until botulism killed several people who ate tuna canned in this factory.­

The people who have been there noticed that this wheel spins continuously with the power of the wind in the airduct.­

Check my other photos of this abandoned factory.

The building has been demolished in Nov 2009, and all the graffiti art that you see on these photos has been destroyed.­

It was an amazing display of graffiti art, unfortunately hard to visit.­

San Francisco photographer Andre Hermann aka "shutter_­se7en" published a very extensive series of photos of the graffiti in this building, which the street artists are calling "Tie's Warehouse".­ You can see those photos here: www.­flickr.­com/­photos/­andrehermann/­sets/­72157606562749963/­
