Old Lace Factory Window

Once one of the biggest lace manufacturers in the U.S., the long-closed Scranton Lace Company included in its work force the father of Hillary Clinton. There was a time when this window flooded the space inside with sunlight and the glow of a new day. Men and women labored there, providing for their families. But it all came to an end. To me, this abandoned factory represents the gradual demise of America's industrial greatness.

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Scranton Lace Co., once the world's largest producer of Nottingham lace and later a symbol of the region's dying textile industry, has stopped production. The 105-year-old company employed more than 1,400 people at its peak in the early 20th century and used enormous, one-of-a-kind looms to create Nottingham lace, named for the city in England where the looms were made."
