Den Gamle Fabrik - The Old Factory ("Eternitten", Aalborg)
One of the last big factories in Aalborg, that closed a couple of years ago and until then produced materials for roofing, facing and cladding from asbestos since 1927. An oldfashioned working place, where a grandfather, father and son could work there at the same time. The production is now moved to Czechia.
In the old days, "Eternitten" was notorious for its poor working conditions. Many workers died from asbetosis through the years. It was told, that the workers hardly could see the man next to them for the asbestose dust.
"Eternitten" is today like a monument near the central Aalborg. The old buildings are like sculptures for me. When I stood one place, the picture composition could be hopeless seen through the camera. But when I moved one step aside, it was perfect!
