Today’s featured image of a parking lot was taken at a DuPont Factory located in Kinston, North Carolina one evening in the early-1950s. The photo was quite a bit darker than what you see here as we took the liberty of taking out most of the shadows and lighting it up for a better view of the vehicles in the lot. Two expandable sections of the lead photo (below) show the cars and trucks in more detail.
The facility was constructed during World War II and began operations in 1943. Seventy-six years later and after two recent expansions the factory is still in use and is producing Sorona, a modern polymer that replaces nylon used in carpeting and clothing.
