Woronoco

Posted on March 31, 2017

Yesterday my commute back took me on some new roads including through Woronoco, MA. The community is part of the town of Russell to the north and used to be home to the Strathmore Paper Company. In 1999 Strathmore packed their bags for the midwest and the town doesn't look so great now. The entire mill is crumbling in place, one of the two bridges over the Westfield river is closed and there isn't so much as a package store in town. Read a little more about the town and the issues facing it on Wikipedia. I took my Mamiya 7ii back with me today so maybe expect some medium format images in a few months.
