The entrance to the A.W. Cash Valve Company, the maker of automatic valves used in plumbing, heating and cooling systems. The company was founded in 1914 and sold in 1991 to IMI PLC, a British-based manufacturing conglomerate.

It is now a nice place to photograph, especially with the autumn colors are in their full splendor.

Submitted for PG101's "Industrial" theme day.
