    For some reason these old factory postcards (there are thousands) really speak to me. Just the fact that someone would put a factory on a postcard. In those days they were proud of them - factories were the pride of their communities. And they even seemed to admire the smoke belching out - a sign of progress. I also like the fact that many of the old factory photos or drawings show trains moving around the property hauling goods.

    These four postcards show the factories of Galveston Brewing, Schlitz, Pabst and Firestone.

      I have the same problem with industrial buildings... I love them! They are one of my favorite subjects in architecture and actually drove me to model many of them in 3D Studio Max (a 3D CAD type program).
