This image is from the GM Leeds Plant Data Processing Center. For details of my walk-through, read below.
This is a General Automation GA-16/460 - a mainframe system, vintage 1980's, worth a cool million dollars (with accoutrements) at the time it was purchased. This, and ALL of the rest of GM's computers and data center equipment, were simply abandoned when GM left the plant in 1988. Vandals broke in at some point, and tossed the room, stealing the floor tiles and much of the copper.
Recently, I was given a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shoot, unescorted and virtually unrestricted, within the locked areas of the old General Motors Leeds Plant for one hour.
These areas have remained virtually untouched since GM padlocked the plant and strolled out of KC (about 20 years ago). When they left, they simply walked away from the building. They left cars on the assembly line, the multi-million dollar computer systems, a brand-new paint shop that cost 20 million dollars - the list goes on and on. Walking around some of these areas is like walking through a ghost ship.
Many of the areas I walked through were completely unlit, except for my flashlight. The only way to get any images in some of these areas was to use my flash. I tried to reduce the glare, reflections and harsh shadows when I shot the images, but I only had an hour to shoot, and I knew I would not likely get the opportunity again, so I shot fast and furious.
