No More Beer Here!

Lawrenceville’s Historic (1861) Iron City Brewing now closed (click underlined name for links) According to the article the plan is shops, condos, a garage in the former stables. Beer production has moved to Latrobe. Stopped at a red light and a line of cars.  Textures from the cobblestones & metal bridge, black paint peeling. Stone wall and a sign. Framed by the car window.  Traffic  behind me in the mirror. Afternoon light on metal and stone.

Iron City Brewing left the city for Latrobe. They've been closing schools for years but the brewery??

Cobblestone, stone wall, rusting metal trestle-textures everywhere.

  1. I love cities over the wilderness. I love what man can create, good news, bad news.
    When i think of the human condition, a city with the things you mentioned, comes to mind. Us humans can truly be remarkable some days….
