there works for Install It 3 Tuesday.
of a Southern Family by Bookman is a collaboration of sorts between the artist and the photographer Richard Samuel Roberts who in the early 20th century had a photography studio on Washington Street a few blocks from this tunnel. It includes pictures Roberts took of Columbia-area residents and photos of the artist’s family which has lived in the Swansea area for many generations.
