An old communist party poster sits torn in an abandoned factory - Debelt, Bulgaria

This destroyed communist poster showing the hammer and sickle was sitting in what looked to be a meeting hall in the abandoned "Hidrostroy" factory in Debelt, Bulgaria. The peeling wallpaper behind it made the photo even more poignant. The factory has been abandoned since slightly after the fall of the socialist regime in Bulgaria (late 1980s-early 1990s)
