Thanks Jim, I was first out there helping (director of photography and
stills) on friends major project film. I  have been out a few times and
often came across music video shoots, it is a vast site with many buildings
(at that time) although I think most have been demolished now :-(  There
were less buildings in 1993 compared to 1988

Hi John,

That sure looks like it would make a fine setting for a shoot-out in any
detective show.  Nice architecture going to waste.
