Camera:COOLPIX S3100

This factory located near the intersection of I69 & I465 is humongous – it is from edge of the screen of the picture to the other – a total of  2,850,000 million square feet.

It was built in 1986 and while initially it did bring a few new jobs to the area, many displaced workers from other plants moved here as it pays wel and most people that are lucky enough to land a position stay, so it is nearly impossible to get a job there now.

From the vehicles that are in the lot on the far left of the picture, beyond what is in the picture, it appears to be small commercial trucks that are being built.
