I spent a couple hours in Gloversville, NY today. I was curious about the town after reading Richard Russo’s short memoir High and Dry, in which he describes the town and the glove industry in detail.

I made a visit to Rankin in December, my previous visits were years before, in the early 2000\’s. A lot had changed at the site since then, it is under redevelopment now, a heritage site with a lot of commercial sites being developed adjacent to the old blast furnaces.
This photographs is from a 2004 visit to Tahawus, a mining site, and also the name of the town that used to stand on this site in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. I\’ve updated my photo essay of Tahawus, some of the photographs have not been posted previously. <a href=\”../mine/index.htm\”>Tahawus Photographs</a>
