THE FORGOTTEN FROZEN
FULTON MARKET COLD STORAGE
Fulton Market Cold Storage Company, essentially a ten-story freezer that
opened in Chicago's Meatpacking district in the 1920s, recently pulled up
stakes and moved out to the suburbs leaving its 90 year old building ready
and prime for redevelopment.
There was just one problem...
Inside there were floors of cold storage that had gone unused for thirteen
years and the rooms had transformed into surreal places complete with ice
stalactites as delicate as feathers and mini-glaciers. The building
has been defrosted since then, but not before photographer Gary Robert
took these and more amazing pictures -- the rest can be found on his site
