Long Description:
Lonely chimney in Boavista, Portimão.
This one is smaller than it´s neaby sister.
There was a Sardine Cannery in this place.
Few Sardine factories remain today. This factory ended it´s production in the late 1970´s/1980´s and the ruins remained untill a couple of years ago when a new shopping center was develloped.
The chimney´s remained and a new garden and kids playground was built around it.
This chimney has not the normal size of the Factory chimney´s on the area. It´s from the same factory as the nearby chimney but it was surelly used for another function than boiling the sardines. Probably from canery building or another related function. We don´t know.
