An eight spread narrative created as part of a larger collaborative  publication by the RISD GD MFA 23 cohort that explores place. Research began with self-initiated prompt in response to a Saturday Evening Post archive published in 1959 — what is the responsibility for a place to uphold its history?

The resulting exploration travels along North Main Street in Providence, Rhode Island to an unmarked former beauty salon that was listed in the 1959 Green Book, the beauty supply shop and the famous textile factory, Slater Mill.
