ruins of the new manchester manufacturing mill, sweetwater creek state park.
i'll tie this in w/ today's history lesson: on this date in 1896 the niagara falls power plant started up. before its use for electrical generation, water was used to generate power in the forms of belts and pulleys. that was the case with new manchester mfg, which redirected a portion of sweetwater creek through the facility to turn the water turbines.
the ruins are a result of sherman's march to the sea, burning anything of military value to the confederacy as he went.
one year ago.
f/8, 1/160s, iso 400.
