More pics on my flickr. This is a cotton mill, original buildings built in 1901. active from 1901 to 1955. forced to close because it couldn't compete with Japanese markets.
I didn't really 'get lucky'. I got lucky because there was a man on a forklift in there. I managed to get around him and he didn't even know I was there. He left eventually and I was able to get shots in the mechanical room (where he was), he did come back after a while, but I was already out and walking down the street. shew. over all was a neat place

Nice find. Abandoned textile mills around here are usually empty, like your first interior shot. Finding stuff inside is a bonus, although to be honest, it looks like most of what's there has nothing to do with the textile industry and was moved there after the mill closed.
