As I research, I find myself poring over photographs of this place in ages past – 80 years ago when doorways had porticos that now are just pedastals or 3 months ago when Dad and I walked an old roadbed I had never explored before.

I crave these bits of fact because this project has so few. . . even after hours of research, I can only peg my story to a handful of names and dates. These photos, they give me shape and structure in an amorphous project that feels so tenuous at times.

So today, I want to share those pictures with you. I made this brief video to highlight the project, and I hope you will find these images help you grasp the importance of these people and their legacy, too.

What do images add to story for you?
