The building supporting this structure is a concrete parking garage.
Textile mills once dominated Rhode Island, as textiles became the most important industry to the Rhode Island economy in the late 19th century. The state’s plentiful water courses provided the power to drive the mills and Providence was one of the first cities in the United States to industrialise. Today, Rhode Island’s textile industry is much smaller, although a few mills continue to produce a limited supply of fabrics...
