The Final Work Whistle
The Scranton Lace Factory was born at the height of the American Industrial Revolution. Once the world leader in the creation of Northampton lace, with more than 1400 employees at peak, two main buildings of over 288,000 square feet housed manufacturing, a beauty salon, bowling alleys, and an infirmary. Until recently, these buildings stood defiant to time, mother nature and the occasional trespasser - as best reflected int the face of this Administration Building. The final work whistle has blown. Scranton, PA abandoned, and now has lost another reminder of it’s manufacturing past as the Scranton Lace Factory was torn down earlier this year (2018) and is now only a footnote in America's Industrial history.
