Photo of The Month – Jan 2006
Picture contributor: Roger Padgett
A new day begins, just before the new year rolls in. Roger Padgett works in a small part of the old mill that is still in operation. A day or two before Christmas, 2005, he was arriving for work at dawn. He reached for his always-handy camera and took this stunning photo. In the dim light you can see about all that’s left of the century old building, as it’s being dismantled brick by brick, timber by timber. It’s nearly gone. You’ll see more of Roger’s work in an upcoming gallery of the mill’s demolition.
