These two novellas and collection of short stories—Hiding Place (1981), Sent for You Yesterday (1984), and Damballah (1981)—share characters, events, and locales, and are set in the Homewood section of Pittsburgh, where Wideman was raised.
Built in 1901, the Armstrong Cork Building was a thriving factory for more than seven decades. Now abandoned, its owners continue to seek a new life for this grand old structure as an apartment complex. But as Annie Ou2019Neillu2019s photographs reveal, thereu2019s still a vibrant energy within its walls.
For more than eighteen months, Ou2019Neill has been drawn to this building, seeking out its hidden nooks and crannies, finding surprisingly complex artwork on its walls, and connecting with former employees. The 400,000-square-foot building that once provided stoppers for beer and soda bottles now provides shelter for the homeless, a canvas for graffiti artists, a space for raves.
An unguided tour of this late-Victorian factory, Unquiet Ruin complicates our view of abandoned buildings, reminding us that beauty is everywhere, if we only stop to look.
