Postindustrial Fullerton

The City of Fullerton is in the process of demolishing the abandoned factories across the street from Hibbleton Gallery on Santa Fe. One of them was an old Donald Duck Juice Factory. I am trying to get the City to use redevelopment funds to build live/work lofts for artists--to make Santa Fe a real arts destination. This re-purposing of industrial areas into arts areas is happening around the country, and I think is a really good idea. Also, the partially-demolished buildings look kind of cool, in a sort of Detroit-esque, postindustrial way:

I think these kinds of images are pretty cool. I edited a book of postindustrial photography that we sell at Hibbleton called "Charming Decay: Photographs of Postindustrial Life"
