Orinoka Mills

More info on the mill here.

UPDATE: Although some independent textile and manufacturing businesses still operate in the newer buildings of the Orinoka Mills complex, most of the older buildings have suffered serious deterioration since having been left vacant for more than a decade, losing brick, cornices and other features. The City of Philadelphia demolished this older half of the mill building on Ruth Street due to falling brickwork in the summer of 2011. Unfortunately, this is the portion of the building that featured this Orinoka Mill painted sign.
