"Unlike many other areas of the state, Baltimore County has remained a home to industry during the modern period. Many of the old industrial complexes were converted to new uses. In the 1930s the Reifschnider Company began to manufacture piston rings in the old Franklinville Cotton Factory. During the late 1940s and early 1950s the plant was a plastic manufactory, and beginning in 1954 the Belko Corporation used it to produce rubber belting products." - from A Historic Context for the Archaeology of Industrial Labor in the State of Maryland by Robert C. Chidester.

I love the mysterious shorthand of the broken sign combined with window.
