The Scranton Lace Company

Punch Cards Are Everywhere: The Scranton Lace Company

Once the largest producer of Nottingham Lace, The Scranton Lace Company was established in 1890 and remained in business until 2002 when the factory was shutdown mid-shift and abandoned shortly afterwards.

In the pictures and video, you will see a teeny tiny part of the huge industrial complex including the only remaining loom, power house, numerous catwalks & scattered punch cards.

Here is the full listing of music tracks used in the video:
