Via Dinosaurs and Robots come these amazing pictures of a derelict machine shop in the mountains of North Carolina. “No one on the mountain can remember it being open” says the Mondo-Blogo author who snapped the pics.

It looked like, one day possibly in the 1960s or 70s, that they just up and closed without even clearing off their desks. The window were so filthy, but it looked AMAZING inside. I would kill to get in there to see the machines and tools that were all just sitting there in a state of suspended animation….

If ever there was an example of the Viridian principle of “embrace decay…” This is rust and ruin as high art.
