This past weekend, Bob Lussier and I led a photowalk around the mills of Lawrence as part of the annual Essex Heritage Trails & Sails event. In addition to visiting the Stone Mill and walking along the North Canal, we were also able to spend some time at the Lawrence History Center exploring the archives and the blacksmith shop on the property.
Bob and I are very fortunate to have a great friend and supporter in Susan Grabski, the History Center’s executive director. She was kind enough to meet with our group, and provide everyone with a wonderful tour of the facilities. Thanks Susan!
This is one of the shots I made in the blacksmith shop. This little corner was lined with bins that at one time were used to store bolts and other items. The shop is such an incredible place to photograph, and I’ll be sharing more images from here in future posts this week.
