The Counter at Bill’s No. 7

The Counter at Bill's No 7Here is another scanned 35mm negative in the Photo Elective category. We’re back inside Bill’s No. 7 which was on Main Street in downtown Willimantic, Connecticut. I must have been in there between the breakfast and lunch rush. At its peak, it had a huge customer base, and it would have been tough to find a seat unlike this photograph.

All sophomore students majoring in illustration at The Philadelphia College of Art were required to take a minor course in photography where the students would take and process black and white, 35mm images and make prints. I lived in and shot photographs around the school’s downtown Philadelphia campus, but I had my camera loaded with Tri-X in tow when I returned to Willimantic for a visit. It was probably Thanksgiving of 1981.
