Sad day in Kenosha WI
« on: May 07, 2013, 12:35:04 PM »
Today the last piece of the Chrysler Plant fell. being 21 i dont remember the plant when it was at full steam but i do know someof the last people to work there and was fortunate enough to be on of the last 200 people to walk through the full plant and be able to get some of the last bricks form the original foundation   I took as many pictures as I could but we weren't supposed to take pictures so I only got a few  and some of the pictures are how the grounds look now    It is very sad to see all that history being just bulldozed like it was nothing  :-[

"The society which scorns excellence in plumbing as a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy: neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water."--John W. Gardner, in "Excellence: Can We Be Equal and Excellent Too?" (1961)
Air-conditioning is so cool!

Thanks for the pictures.  It is sad to see a place where so many people earned their livelihood and invested their blood, sweat and tears into producing a product they loved and believed in be torn down.  A big thanks to all the men and women who worked there building the cars we love so much.
