Sepia Scenes - Derby Neck


Sepia Scenes arrives, brings me back to the classic past. The look of the past often gives us a range of classic architecture, different from modern and easy to build structures. New is not necessarily bad, but glass and steel seems to lack character.

The subject in question is in neighboring small town Derby CT, population 13,000. This is the beautiful Derby Neck Library, and the original structure completed in 1907. I chose this shot as the modern clutter of utility poles, wires and autos are lacking – the sepia takes back in time with this monochrome edit.

Wilbur Osborne was the industrialist that created the original library in a school in 1897, Andrew Carnegie funded the new building. It is in a Classical Revival Style. It is stunning place of learning…
