Dulan Sugar Factory Vats

Dulan sugar factory vats

I captured this photograph inside Xīndōng Sugar Factory 新東糖廠, more commonly known in English as the Dulan Sugar Factory in Taitung 台東, Taiwan. The Japanese colonial-era factory was closed in the 1990s and left to the elements. Nowadays there is a lively art scene at the old factory—and the building itself is open to the public, more or less, with many rusty old machines still in place and many levels of gangways to explore.
