I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.

    1417 University Avenue. Commercial building with apartments on upper levels. Eastlake style. Built 1848; expanded 1891-92.
    Brick clad in sheet metal at front and stucco at rear; 3 stories; parapet-fronted shed roof; 7-bay front;
    2 storefront bays (rebuilt ca. 1960). Elaborate metal façade with engaged colonnettes between windows;
    tall parapet entablature with floral and geometric motifs and the raised-metal inscription “ANDERSON BROTHERS.”
    This impressive commercial building has the largest metal-clad façade in Charlottesville.
