Hidden in Plain Sight – Post 52

This silk mill was built in 1876, designed by William Sugden for H.D. Bayliss. A classical styled building with Lombardic detailing.

I can’t find any information as to when the building stopped being a mill or who H.D. Bayliss was but from February 2007 the building has been home to an antique and reproduction furniture emporium.

Shooting Information:
Canon EOS 550D & 18-55mm Kit Lens
Exposure 1/200, Aperture f/8.0, ISO 200, Focal Length 24mm

    Love old buildings. Here is a couple of links to a workshop we gave in Maryland, USA of an abandoned silk mill. The history is that in the 1950’s the entire workforce was locked out because of a dispute and everything was left in place.
