Smells House, 1886

Smells House, 1886

This warehouse was built in 1886 – that’s, like, 100 years before I was born. Interestingly, the construction was made primarily out of wood. In place of steel i-beams there were wooden support beams. It’s pretty creepy to think that this giant four-storey building is held up entirely by rotting wood. The floors were mostly wooden, and were disintegrating in several places – multiple opportunities to fall through. In fact, a local artist that I’m really starting to like, SMELLS, painted one piece with a quote saying, “I fell through,” with an arrow pointing to the hole in the rotten floor. But besides that piece, SMELLS came through hard in this warehouse, filling it with a lot of burners throughout. Hence my name, Smells house. Though, I also noticed cash4, C2C and Nerds all had a strong presence as well. Especially C2C killing it with the highest roof-top spot.
