Starting from a young age, I’ve always loved exploring. I can remember venturing off and scoping out the houses being built in the developing neighborhood right behind my house. As I got older, I found myself appreciating the work and love that went into architecture and just being excited to pass by the beautifully designed places in downtown.

Thank you so much for posting this. I think this really puts things into a different light. I mean, I have read about this stuff before but the way you write just makes it clearer. If that makes sense

The Cushing water works was actually just east of Ripley. A couple miles down from the Ripley school.

While Photographing in July 2011. Heard sounds of the old machinery trying to pump for about 5 min. This happened while in the room containing the ever deteriating wooden chair.
