I'm glad Brian Vanden Brink is giving some permanence to these lost beauties with his book Ruin: Photographs of Vanishing America.
My friend, Sesha, called me yesterday to tell me that she's making a trip to Marshfield today to capture a one room school house before it is to be torn down today.
This house is just four blocks away from my house and when I called to inquire about the property, the landlord who owns a long strip of houses much like this one, told me that it was slated to be torn down very soon.
I'm hoping to at least recover the clothesline that was ripped up out of the back yard. Those are vanishing pieces too.
xo to you vanishing beauties!
