CHIMNEYS (2942014)

Traditionally Sabadell has been a textile town, until the XXth century brought a big crisis for this sector. Sabadell has made an effort to keep the legacy of that past, giving new use to the vapors, the old factories where steam was basic (hence their name, as vapor means steam); and keeping too some of the tall chimneys from those vapors.

Here I’ve posted some of them, from the centre of town. One of the photos shows too the windows of one of those vapors I was talking about, now dedicated to the service of the town, and the chimney of another company, showing how close those factories could be (the second vapor, however, hasn’t survived).
