Hydraulics Factory – Interior #1, Buffalo, New York, 2006

The Houdaille Hydraulics factory made shocks for automobiles in Buffalo. This factory dated to 1919, and supplied shocks for most of the major and minor manufactures through the 1940s. As the industry changed, the Buffalo factory changed to a specialized tool manufacturer.  I made several trips to the factory in 2006 and 2007. In 2008 the Houdaille factory went through an environmental remediation through the US Superfund project to prepare it for redevelopment. To date, no redevelopment has occurred and the site remains in limbo.
