Closed since the early-90's Fisher Body 21 has joined the list of forlorn symbols of industry. The plant was originally built to produce Buick and Cadillac bodies and was the birthplace for the bodies of countless Cadillacs. These modern-day ruins were created by wave after wave of lay-offs and corporate collapses of the Detroit auto industry.<br />
<br />
Known as the world's automotive center Detroit was once the home of 1.85 million people in the 1950's. It now houses 917,000 and for this reason it is said that there are now 80,000 abandoned buildings within the city.
