    Are they making parks in the areas of Kodak that have been demoed in Rochester PE?

    Interesting collection of photos - I wonder if the photos in that collection were made by the very technology that killed the plant?
    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...

    Haunting images of abandoned Kodak factory

    Marco B: "Burst eye wash pipe" is a photo of an Eyewash Station pipe that burst and the water eventually froze in a wave form, but not before totally flooding the basement and rendering the elevator useless! It was pretty wild, 'they' left the electricity on but turned the heat off, so the water in the pipes froze and needless to say there were bursts all over property.

    fhovie: The images I shot of the Kodak Plant we mostly shot on 35mm film. However, I did use a p&s digital camera for snaps in dark rooms and my Autocord when I revisited Building 9 (the only building left of the site) last year.

    Thanks for looking at my photos!

    The SA'FETY FILM marks were very common in the distant past, although when I got 100 ft rolls of Bulk film, the US code was shown even though the box said Kodak Canada. My undrstanding is that back in the 50s and 60 ALL the Common types were made in Toronto for the canadian market. Mind you the marking would have applied to film that was converted in toronto from master rolls made elsewhere.
    I beleive that Paper was the last product that they coated there.

    While doing my daily Kodak news story search today I came across this image of the abandoned Toronto Kodak plant, figured I'd posted it in this old thread so as to keep the info/photos in one place...
