1999 AD

A vision of 1999, from 1967. Some fantastic retro-futurist predictions from the Philco-Ford Corporation.

Cement Factory (Shoreham, Abandoned)

I used to stare at this place when I was a child and we passed it in the car. Before I knew it was a cement factory, I knew it was abandoned. I always wondered why no one lived there. As I got older, it seemed bleaker.

I never knew there was a Monkey Puzzle tree in there, it seems so much more alive now, the circular courtyard like a garden.
