jog memory, and the accuracy of personal recall. In the end, our expectation is that this self-consciousness will lead forward: Everyone who brings a camera or videotape to the Homestead High Level Bridge to record the destruction of the mill may help keep the current "flattening" from bringing a total disappearance of landscape and scene. What we discovered in this project, through the particular approach to interviewing that we adopted, indicates that Homestead has a history which the townspeople, not only the photographer and anthropologist, record "visually."
