SKU: HWLS Category:

Long Exposure Photograph of a hidden gem found in none other than in Gary, Indiana. Don’t let the handfuls of peeling paint frighten you. The abandoned utility building designed by renowned architect George W. Maher is as beautiful as it is endangered. Early in 1926, George W. Maher & Son were commissioned to design a warehouse for Gary Heat, Light, & Water Co. Unfortunately, George Maher suffered from depression and, just a few months prior, was released from a Wisconsin hospital after a year-long stay. The G.H.L.W. Warehouse is the last set of drawings to hold Maher’s name and architectural registration. In the fall of 1926, sadly, the creative genius took his own life.
