antique slaughter houses

I was lucky enough to acquire a lot of  antique abattoir photos a few years ago. After the slaughter house piece ran in SF Magazine I let a few of them out to bee seen by the world.  The photos I chose are very cool to see, very simple and austere but to the point.

  1. Love the pictures, saw the ones in the article and it reminded me of growing up in the country. It was a totally different time back then. There wasn’t the stigma that we have today with a slaughter house. There was respect for the animal from start to finish.
    Thanks for the pics they were great.

  2. My husband had the opportunity to spend a week with an abattoir in N. Ireland last spring during lambing season. It was an experience he will never forget and took away so much knowledge to put to use when we have the farm up and running. Great photos and great article. Thanks.
