This old building is near downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It’s large smokestack catches your eye from Highway 52. One afternoon I decided to take the nearest exit and have a look. The location has a lot of character and photographic opportunities. In addition to the smokestack, the facility has an old railroad trestle and tracks adjacent to the main building. There is also a large iron structure supporting what may have been a water tank.
I’m pretty sure this is an old Sara Lee textile facility. Thus far I have been unable to find any history online. Hopefully, I’ll have more background information on this great location in a future post. I’m excited about the great architectural features, shapes and textures in this first set of images. Hope you enjoy as well.
