Minimax Factory, Feltham, West London (art deco style). 

This entrance propped up by steel supports is all that is left of the former art deco style Minimax factory in Feltham, West London. It now sits forlornly in front of an anonymous business park at the side of a red route junction. It can only hint at what kind of impressive building was there before. 

While I was taking this picture a pensioner came past and told me how the whole factory was ripped down over one weekend, in her view to avoid it being preserved. Her anger at the loss of such a building was still evident despite decades having passed. 

You can find out about the fight to preserve art deco buildings in the UK by visiting c20society.org.uk

There is also a great small book detailing many art deco buildings in London, more details here.
