I had the chance to take a trip down to Shelton, Connecticut and take pictures of the old factories on Canal Street. The owners of the buildings were nice enough to let me get inside the Star Pin Company factory. The Star Pin Company made metal pins that had a star pattern that would be added to buildings to help prevent wall blow-outs. It was great chance to see a piece of history before they were torn down to make room for modern buildings or refurbished one. On the other hand it was sad to see how vandals had snuck into the factory to deface it.
