Echoes of Industry: Abandoned Pittsburgh Plate Glass Plant Print

In the heart of California's eastern Sierra, where the sun paints the sky in hues of orange and red, stands an enduring symbol of our industrial past. I found the abandoned Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company, once a thriving soda ash plant humming with activity. Now it lies silent, resonating with a haunting beauty that beckons me to capture its story.

This photograph I took in 2010 reveals the plant in its desolate glory, its large sheds,, and silos standing as solemn witnesses to the passage of time. From 1880, this plant was the heartbeat of the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company, a pioneer in producing high-quality, thick flat glass using plating. The buildings were crucial in crystallizing and processing carbonate compounds mined from the exposed lake bed.

In 1968, the factory ceased its operations, leaving its massive structures to fade under the touch of time. Dr. McCabe, an inventor of medical valves, purchased these abandoned towers, adding a fascinating twist to the site's history.

Today, my photograph brings these memories to life, printed on acid-free 100% cotton paper with velvety texture and a warm-tone finish. The archival inks capture sharp precision, smooth transitions, deep blacks, intricate details, and vibrant hues. Each print is meticulously hand-signed by me on the reverse side, offering a personal touch to this piece of art. Along with the print, you'll receive a certificate of authenticity, further enhancing the value of your purchase.

Assuring you of the finest quality, every print has a lifetime warranty against fading. Although frames are not part of the package, the photograph is a testament to the power of the visual narrative. All this, along with free global delivery and a 14-day satisfaction guarantee, makes this a piece of art that captures a moment in time and offers an immersive, tactile experience.
