Old South Carolina

In the not so distant past, much of of our clothing was made here in America. With the advent of the union push to raise wages, and the low cost labor in the Asian countries and India the mills slowly closed; people lost jobs and towns died. One can travel through North and South Carolina and find towns that are shells of their former glory.VClosed mill 01

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
