A Photo a Week Challenge: Neglected

Abandoned Factory Solothurn 26.07 (6)

If there was ever a neglected factory, this is it. I remember when I arrived in this town almost 50 years ago and it was thriving, but since at least 20 years it has looked like this. There are no longer machines there, just an empty building, The shutters on the widows are beginning to disintegrate if the glass is still there.

Grass is growing in the cracks and I think I can even see an old chair in a corner in the background. The owner is no longer here, but now an old man and relaxing on the sunny shore of a warmer country.

I went for a tour this afternoon to take some photos.

This is the back of the factory. Perhaps the workers used this small alley for a smoke in between work, or just a chat with each other. Now it is closed and entry is forbidden. Nature is taking over with its weeds.

    • We donor have so many neglected buildings. I know this old factory now belongs to the bank, but no one is showing interest to buy it. Eventually it will probably be demolished. Another chance for some interesting photos


  1. My husband was interested in buying an old factory building to renovate and have for our business offices, but it would have cost more for the renovation than to buy the building. It will be interesting to see what nature has done to the back alley in another 20 years. 🙂 Wonderful post. Thanks for joining the challenge!

    • This building now belongs to the bank, for some time. Eventually it will be pulled down. Either they will make parking places, or perhaps something new will be built. It is beyond repair or rescue.
