Basement Calendar

History indicates the manufacturing levels of the Silk Mill were declining in the later years. While the mill closed in 1957, this calendar in the lower level is from 1955 indicating that operations in this area was phased out earlier.

I wanted to draw attention to the calender so I converted to mostly B&W and painted the red portions of the calendar back in. The color version is shown for comparison. While most of the images captured here are HDR, this scene worked as a straight shot.
