HI all Im Urban Cleetus new to this site and photography. I have been Watching the group and waiting to find somewhere which hasn't been done, before i post So here we go, My first post! History: The factory in Harrow first opened in 1891 and was also Eastman Kodak’s first manufacturing base outside America.The factory in Harrow was the largest photographic manufacturing plant in the British Commonwealth and at the height of its output in the 1950s it employed more than 6,000 people. The site provided printing paper for professional use of mural images and also personal use by amateur photographers.Kodak has been present in Harrow for more than 120 years, the factory’s history charting much of the history of popular photography itself. Due to the ever-growing popularity of digital photography, in 2005 track four at the factory was shut and ended the site’s production of film, leading to the loss of 250 jobs.Now due to increasing financial pressures in recent years, Kodak has sold off the Harrow site for development. The last shift was carried out Friday 2nd December 2016 I visited this site three time in the 8 days since its closure with the company of 2 explorers i know. Beware dogs and heavy security on site
