Poldi Kladno

The old Poldi steel factory in Kladno. This part of the factory has long been abandoned but was a great place for us to go to on a photo shoot with the class. I used to run a little candle factory in one of these old buildings. The story about this industrial enterprise from its foundation in the 19th century I will investigate but I know the owner was the father of one the 19th centuries great philosophers. Can't remember whether it was Schopenauer the mysogynist or Nietsche the existentialist. Will update.

I am an old Roumanian engineer. On 60's years we worked a lot with Poldi steels in turbine blade manufacturing.
The AK1, AK2MV...AK4 were our dear stainless steel materials.
