info on commodore lithographs is virtually non existent which is a shame tbh as id like to know the story behind not just commodore but houghton and lappin vacating the building and leaving pretty much everything behind.
evidence of squatters/smackheads are all over this place with various rooms littered with sleeping bags/clothing/foil...the usual stuff.
commodore (we think) closed its doors in 2007 and was a printers ,which done media and advertising ,flyers,album covers....etc, i think the things left lying around gave it away tbh.
houghton and lappin is a pharmacist and judging by the sign on the front of this place it seemed to be the head office for the company.
also creative cards seems to be housed somewhere inside aswell but we found no evidence of that company.

large printing device
the door led to a secret room.......but its a secret
a few from houghton and lappin...there wasnt much in here tbh,one thing i did notice is when i was looking at this pic i noticed a smear in the middle,at first i thought it was dirt on the lens but a few days later i noticed something inside the lens slap bang in the middle i dont know what it is,almost like a rumb or bit of dirt ,anyway i gave the whole lens a clean and the same smear appears on other pics.....bit of a **** really as its a fixed lens camera and supposed to be sealed,and havent had it long. it also doesnt appear in all pics.
a few from the roof...it was raining hard so didnt take as many pics as i would have liked up here
if anyone fancies storming the gates of heaven give me a shout
