Scenes of the City: Abandoned Anchor Glass Company

For this week's Scenes of the City, we visited a spooky old glass factory in the delta town of Antioch. Anchor Glass Factory (1400 W 4th Street) was demolished recently, but for some time it was a photographer's and explorer's haven. Like most abandoned industrial sites, it almost seems like everyone clocked out one Friday and just never came back, leaving behind magazines, boots, and tools.
