Dusty machines and forgotten belongings fill this abandoned silk mill, frozen in time since the last workers walked out more than 50 years ago.  They are the only signs of life at the once-successful mill and have remained untouched since the workforce downed tools back in 1957.<br />
<br />
Photographer Darryl Moran stepped back in time to give the world a rare glimpse inside the forgotten mill.<br />
Business looked promising when Lonaconing Silk Mill, in Maryland, America, opened in 1905 and its workforce grew to 300.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
