These reproductions of old photos are painted in sepia tones and set off with borders and photographic corners as if taken from an old photo album. They appear on a long L-shaped building and cover two walls of that building.
In the weeks ahead, we'll view them one at a time, along with the description (as written on the painted tag that accompanied each photo). Enjoy this trip to the past...

Those were some amazing trees they cut down back then, with considerable risk to life and limb, I would suppose!
