These photos were taken during our recent visit to Fall River, MA.
Fall River is a city in the 10th largest city in the state of MA and is located on the eastern shore of Mount Hope Bay at the mouth of the Taunton River. Fall River was famed for its textile manufacturing industry. Its cotton mills brought prosperity to the city. The great fire of 1843, the Great Depression, slowing demand for print cloths after World War II, increased competition, and eventually, globalization, led to the demise of the industry leaving many empty factory and office spaces in the city.
These days, Fall River is famous for the Battleship Cove, among others. It hosts a large collection of WW II armory and serves as a memorial for the citizens of the State who served during the said War.
