  1. “It was, but not anymore!”
    You know, that is a great commentary on so many communities where the “means d’etre” went away. Mill communities, particularly. Or industrial cities in the MidWest. Or old downtowns often. I guess that it’s a reprise, in a way, of those cities in Europe that flourished in antiquity but lay in ruins with a small village left (like Athens) for millennia. I guess, to their credit, they “were” at one time, whereas some places “never were.” I think of where my parents grew up, which had precious few amenities over the years because people didn’t work together and there was no organizing principal. There’s some sort of deep social commentary to be found in these stories and images.
