(F) Marquette-lez-Lille, Grands Moulins de Paris, I

"Les Grands Moulins de Paris" in Marquette-lez-Lille was a flour-mill, built in 1920 and closed in 1989. "Les Grands Moulins de Paris" is still spread all over France, but also in Belgium, Italy, Sweden and Libanon. Their activities follow the way of corn: from cultivation till finished products.
The building in Marquette-lez-Lille has very much fallen into decay, by climatic conditions but also by vandals. It's a very impressive building, full of rubbish and graffiti. You have to watch your step because there are holes in the floor/ceiling everywhere.

We met another photographer from Germany, who was there already all day.
