Abandoned shoe factory and shop

Another Sunday, another exploration.  First up for today was an abandoned shoe factory.

Judging by the dates of the newspapers left in the factory, it has been abandoned for awhile.  There is hardly any graffiti though.

Upstairs from the factory is the former sales showroom, and office area.

Not sure why they closed down.  If they were relocating they would have taken the machinery and shoe moulds with them.  Perhaps they went out of business.

I will post the second half of today’s explore tomorrow.
