Graffiti by ESKAPE - 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.­

It looks like a photo with partial desaturation, but i did not do any digital manipulation.­ The room where i am has yellow plastic windows, while the room behind the door had a skylight window letting the white sunlight come in directly, causing this strange effect.­

Check my other photos of this abandoned factory.

This photo was #143 in interestingness for Aug 5, 2006 (checked at 4:10 am on Aug 6, 2006).­

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/­
