Globe File Manufacturing Company - Abandoned

Andy | Saturday, August 16, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Established 1888 in Port Hope, Ontario. Taken over by Cooper Industries in 1972, it remained in Port Hope until the North American Free Trade Act (NAFTA) led to the business being moved to Mexico.

  4. That is the first thing my eye caught too, the effect the ultra wide angle lens gave to the building. Looks cool.

  6. I'm not sure I'd think of it as progress. It's a bit forelorn.

  8. I'm seeing condos here one day. But, it is always sad to see the loss of manufacturing capacity and jobs.

  9. I'm with Jack too. And based on my recent experience with the quality of products - the kinds of things that used to last decades - I can't say it's a positive trend.
