The Ruins of Laurens Mill

The Laurens Mill in Laurens SC is now a demolition site. This set of pictures focuses on the debris still remaining on the site after 4+ years of work removing the once impressive structure. I'm not sure what is more sad; the neglected building, skeletal remains of a building, piles of debris, or empty spaces where a building once was. These pictures of debris are a testimony for a building just one step away from vanishing forever.
