Exploring and documenting abandoned and forgotten industrial architecture in America can be an exciting endeavor.

Urban Lithograph is a gallery dedicated to documenting the histories of industrial and manufacturing buildings through photography.

We believe that these structures are an important part of our shared heritage and deserve to be preserved. We work with local photographers to bring you a wide range of images that capture the beauty and uniqueness of these buildings.

Whether you are an industrial history buff or just enjoy looking at beautiful photos, we hope you enjoy our collection!

There are a number of reasons why this type of architecture is important to document.

First, these structures represent an important part of America’s history. Many of these buildings were once the site of booming businesses and played a vital role in the country’s economy.

Today, they stand as reminders of a bygone era.

Second, these buildings are often architecturally significant. They are usually large and imposing, and their design often reflects the innovative spirit of the people who built them.

Third, abandoned industrial buildings can be eerily beautiful, especially when they’re set against a backdrop of nature that has reclaimed them.

Seeing these massive structures slowly being taken over by vines and trees can be both haunting and mesmerizing.

For anyone interested in American history or architecture, exploring and documenting abandoned industrial buildings is a worthwhile pursuit.

These structures offer a unique window into our past, and their beauty is worth preserving for future generations.
