Industrial Wasteland?



No, I don’t see this as a wasteland.  I like the image.  Soft coloring – simple, plain maybe but not stark.  It’s a postcard depicting Richland Washington, no date.  But it’s actually part of the Hanford site where plutonium was produced for use in the atomic bomb.  So in a way it has sinister overtones given the terrible destruction caused by atomic weapons.  We live in the nuclear age, alas.
