Look at me go! I'm 5 deep ya'll!
This is one of the most amazing places I ever had the pleasure of exploring. Located at 35th and Ashland, the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company’s crown factory. The place where signature gum flavors like Spearmint and Doublemint were born. Built in 1911, I had the great fortune of making two trips before it fell to the wrecking ball. I'm not sure how much of the factory if any still stands.
- the floors were slick with a thick sticky brown substance. Sugar. The 10 story tall sugar silo the building is built around fed all the various machines with the sticky substance to make gum. Over the years, after having all the machinery cut away, the pipes that carry the sugar all over the factory slowly bleed out the left over- leaving all of the production floors in the factory glistening in tar like splendor.
