Roundhouse

Written by Concrete on . Posted in Finger Lakes, Industrial

The Manchester Roundhouse was one of the largest warehouses of its time, built somewhere around 1900. Warehouses of that era tended to be arch-shaped, so that trains could come in, unload, and exit facing back out onto the track. This one stayed in business much longer than most roundhouses, but has been closed at least 30 years. This was my first time exploring with the new camera. Unfortunately I didn’t discover auto focus for a few more days… so about 90% of what you don’t see here was blurry trash that deserved to be deleted.
