Inner Workings of the Old Mill

Purchase a print of this photograph

The Old Mill - or Pugh's Mill - in North Little Rock, Arkansas was never a true mill but merely a piece of aesthetic architecture meant for visitors to the city to enjoy. However, inside the "mill," there are the workings from the true mills of the past. Here, we see the wooden cogs and grinding stone from one of those mills. Tomorrow, we'll see a shot of Pugh's Mill itself.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.
