American Laundry Machinery
 

Sitting in the middle of one of the rougher districts of Rochester, this grand industrial complex stands out alongside the railway next to it. But looks can be deceiving; while parts of the plant are abandoned, others are active under new owners. But none of them are the American Laundry Machinery Co (ALCM), the original owners.

Built in 1930, the particular plant was not the first for ALCM; the company had existed for some time prior to this facility. As the name suggested, it originally started out producing machinery for washing machines, but over the years expanded their operations into dry cleaning, rug cleaning, and finally into cast iron manufacturing and centrifuge components. The company vanished in the 1960's, having been bought out by McGraw-Edison, although it is unknown if the Rochester facility was shut down at the time.

Inside the abandoned section, there isn't too much to see; there are two large rooms (one of which is a large machine shop), a flooded basement, relatively empty storage areas, and offices that have been destroyed. Evidence of a fire is obvious in the large warehouse area; this fire was recently declared as arson by the city. Much of the machinery is gone, likely removed for scrap value.

All in all, the location may have once been very promising, but now it is just a shell of itself. It helped pass the hours, but I highly doubt I'll ever return to it.
