Warner & Swasey Co. Building (Abandoned)

Inside the abandoned Warner & Swasey Company building, at E 55th St and Carnegie Ave, Cleveland.

Warner & Swasey, founded in 1880, used to be a major manufacturer of machine tools, instruments (including astronomical telescopes!), and special machinery. You can find most of the company's history on its Wikipedia page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warner_&_Swasey_Company. This particular location used to be a major factory of the company and employ thousands of workers. It however was shut down in 1985 and has been vacant since then.
