abandoned flour factory in olmedo spain

fabrica de harinas abandonada

This abandoned flour mill in Olmedo, a little town near Valladolid (Spain) was my grandfather’s first proper workplace. Apparently, he used to work as an accountant and, having had no prior experience, messed up a few times.

This beautiful industrial building now stands empty and in disrepair (the broken windows are visible in both photos), but thankfully the amazing typography stands the test of time. I’m tremendously grateful that I got to see it as it looked back then. Maybe the next time I should try to venture inside…
