Abandoned Johnstown - Harris Boyer Bakery


Thought I'd start an occassional series - Abandoned Johnstown. I am going to state this from the get go - Johnstown city officials are doing their very best to get rid of blight all across the city - case in point - the ongoing battle with the crumbling Harris Boyer Plant - shown here from the Barron Avenue side. So if you have something negative to say - don't say it here - because I will delete it. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
To me, there is a type of beauty to these structures that only natural forces can create. The plant was huge - from the Fairfield Avenue (front) to Barron Avenue (behind) - they even built across and over the alley.

I don't think I would walk to close to that building...it looks very crumbly. Oh, the fond memories of the wonderful smells coming from that place on Sunday mornings, walking to 8:30 mass.

That last picture with the faded red door is amazing.

It's a shame they let this building go to slums. That could've had so much potential for something big.

Id love to get some inside shots..I love abandoned buildings, there is just something about them.

Nice work. You're right, there is beauty in desolation. I find these photos evocative.
