This old factory building was once the bread and butter of its community. The International Boiler Works Company was a world leader in heat and power production from the 1890’s through 1992. Its products may be found in many communities across the nation and waterways.

The Minnie-Ha-Ha at Lake George New York is just one of currently operating steamboats that leisurely transports site-seeing tourists as in time past; powered by a boiler built within these very walls.

The company was one of many to become a target of lawsuits concerning Mesothelioma.

Once a world leader in the production of heat and steam products, its buildings now lay vacant and vandalized.

I am a self-taught photographer living in Central New Jersey. In my early years I have worked as a children’s photographer but my career then steered me into IT, but my passion has always been for photography. Throughout the years I have been published numerous times in both periodicals and newspapers, and have been a featured resident gallery artist. My photography runs the gamut from photo-journalistic to fine art.

    Kind of sad, but the health issues are also sad. Nice capture.
