My vignette this week comes from my visit to Earthwise Architectural Salvage (post to come.) A year or so ago, I read in the newspaper about an old middle school being renovated and much of the older furniture being brought to Earthwise. I'd not so long ago spent some time at that school while working on my master's degree. I remember thinking that the auditorium, especially, was a grand example of the grace and scale of schools built in the early part of the twentieth century. Here are a few of the seats from that very auditorium. Who knows how many performances they've witnessed over the years, how many young lives transformed by learning, by the arts, by ideas. Rows of lockers have served their time as well. Will any of these find a new purpose or is this one last stop before the end?
