73. Jacob Riis + Early 20th century 35mm cameras

"Camera without a home"
atelier ying, nyc.

This homage is a series I’m planning about children. The industrial revolution photographers like Riis and Lewis Hine were reformers. And the camera’s early history was integral in this important work.

My only ties to Riis has been that I live near Mulberry Street, which was a slum in his time and part of his explorations. And I’ve played golf on the tiny par 3 short course in the Riis Park named after him, near the ocean in Brooklyn.

The child workers Riis documented are invited to a camera house which one enters only by the 2.5 foot diameter "lens" crawl space. There is another means of egress by secret tunnel, not shown. A pool house is on the roof, where the visitors can take in some sun during a game of Marco Polo. Inside the camera (and on the left) is an arsenal of ultra rare pre-Leica 35mm cameras from the early 20th century. The visitors are invited to take them out onto the Street, or to swing open the compartment hatches along the façade of the building and shoot from prescribed vantage points. a set of assorted ladders are provided inside.

I would not stoop so low as to denigrate the life experience of these children by giving them this homage as a gift or present it with any kind of significance, it would only demean and patronize them. This is simply an invitation to a playground; a diversion for a few hours from life.

Miami Beach – South Beach: The Clevelander

Image by wallyg
The Clevelander Hotel, at 1020 Ocean Drive, was designed by Albert Anis and opened in 1938 by the Charles Ratner, founder of the Cleveland-based Forest City Enterprises. In 1951, the Ratners hired Robert Swartburg to expand the property. A long concrete canopy was added, set at an angle to the street and topped with a neon-backed aluminum letter sign, to connect the front porch with a parking area that developed in the southside garden. At the end of the canopy, a MiMO-styled concrete disk supported on curved limbs, conveys the imagery of a flying saucer or mushroom. Just behind the canopy, an amorphously shaped swimming pool with built-in seating was added in 1953,

In 1986, the porte cochere was redeveloped by Beilinson Architect as a bar with the installation of a glass-block and marble counter beneath the canopy. Through the 1980s and 90’s, the outdoor bar surrounding the pool area, which has highest liquor sales in all of Florida, overshadowed the property’s hotel operations. In 2008, STA Architectural Group built a new wing at the rear, which allowed for the original lobby fronting Ocean Drive to be restored to its historic configuration and guest check-in function.

The 5-story Art Deco landmark has a characteristic tripartite facade, with a highly decorated central bay topped with a mini-ziggurat with dual-colored fluting. Vertical fluting on the sides is bifurcated by windows. The eyebrows on the operate as string courses dividing the registers and emphasizing a horizontal movement, instead of the continuous alignment typical of Miami Art Deco style.

The Miami Beach Architectural District, also known as Old Miami Beach Historic District, or the more common, Miami Beach Art Deco District, is roughly bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Alton Road and Collins Canal/Dade Boulevard and 5th Street. With 960 vibrantly colored historic buildings, it contains the largest concentration of 1920s and 1930s resort architecture in the United States.

The Army Corps of Engineers conduct daily depth measurements along the intake side of The Old River Control Complex, Low Sill Structure in Concordia Parish, LA, on Tuesday, May 17, 2011. The measurements tell both the condition along the intake “ramp” and allow them to calculate the flow through the gates. The Old River Control Complex is designed to channel as much as 30 percent of the Mississippi River’s flow into the Gulf of Mexico through it’s eleven 44-foot wide gates across 566 foot span that separates the Mississippi and (the outflow channel to the) Red and Atchafalaya Rivers. Rated at 300,000 million gallons per minute (note: That’s more than seven Olympic sized swimming pools every second). Although this helps the Mississippi River, it (along with other concerns, puts back pressure on the Red River and other waterways, possibly causing some flooding of farms to avoid a catastrophic breech of the levee system. Most of the gates have been opened by a rolling crane and stored in racks. Debris, some as larger than telephone polls make their way through the gates and pool in eddies. The constant motion and contact with other objects, strip trees of their branches and bark. 20-30 pound Carp can frequently be seen jumping out of the white water. USDA Photo by Lance Cheung.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays – Phantom Ranch – Grand Canyon
swimming pool design
Image by Al_HikesAZ
Phantom Ranch is almost a mile down and 10 miles by trail from the South Rim. Approximately 4.5million people visit the South Rim each year and maybe 50,000 make it to here.

The present day ranch was designed by Mary Jane Colter and constructed in 1922. It was called Rust’s Camp, then Roosevelt Camp but she named it Phantom Ranch after Phantom Creek that enters Bright Angel Creek just north of here. The Style of architecture is referred to as National Park Rustic. A popular campground – Bright Angel Campground – is just south of here. It was the CCC camp back in its day (before I was hiking). When I first came down, there was a swimming pool, but it was removed in the 1970’s. It had electricity when I first visited here, but the Silver Bridge, present water system and septic system weren’t in place yet from what I remember.

From Wikipedia:
The site where the ranch is now located was used by Native Americans; pit houses and a ceremonial kiva dating from about 1050 AD have been found there. The earliest recorded visit by Europeans took place in 1869, when John Wesley Powell and his company camped at its beach. Prospectors began using the area in the 1890s, using mules to haul their ore. At the turn of the century, the founders of the Grand Canyon Transportation Company began a project to exploit its tourism potential; they hired a crew to improve the trail from Phantom Ranch to the Canyon’s North Rim. President Theodore Roosevelt travelled down the canyon to the camp during a hunting expedition in 1913; in honor of this visit, the site became known as Roosevelt Camp.
Roosevelt’s enthusiam for the Grand Canyon helped lead to its incorporation into the National Park System in 1919. The Fred Harvey Company was granted the concession for the camp in 1922; the company hired the American architect Mary Colter to design permanent lodging. Mary Colter suggested that its name be changed to Phantom Ranch.[1] Construction presented a major challenge: all the building materials except rock had to be hauled down by mules. Meeting the challenges at this and other national parks led to the architectural style known as National Park Service Rustic, which features native stone, rough-hewn wood, large-scale design elements, and intensive use of hand labor.
During the Great Depression in the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps made a number of improvements to the ranch and its access trails. The 1920s and 1930s saw its popularity grow, and it was visited by many wealthy and notable guests. The Fred Harvey company made it a point to hire young, attractive, well-educated, and adventurous women to staff the resort.

ps – do not expect to hike down here, drink a 6pack of Tecate and make it back to the Rim the same day in the summer. Take my advice and take a siesta at Indian Gardens, put on your headlight, take two Tylenol and stagger up to the Rim when it cools down.
