Photos: A Visual Tour Of United Record Pressing

Jun 4, 2013

Located in Nashville, United Record Pressing is one of the largest and oldest continually operating vinyl record pressing plants in the US.

It's current location — on Chestnut Street, near Greer Stadium — opened in 1962, when segregation made it difficult for visiting Motown artists to find lodging. So, the pressing plant provided an on-site apartment that still exists today as a pristine time capsule of a bygone era.

WPLN photographer Stephen Jerkins recently toured the plant. Click above for slideshow.
