One other image that stuck in my mind as the water rushed through Ellicott City was a small box of pears in front of Yates. I seriously doubt that this small store made any money selling the items they placed in front of the store, but I believe that they decided to use this valuable property as a reminder of the historic nature of the city.

A week after the flood residents have finally been allowed to return home. The rebuilding effort moves on and hopefully this place will recover.

This print was made on homemade silver gelatin paper (AZO formula) accompanied by a sepia toner.
