Water, Water, Everywhere

This 1973 photo is from the governmental series titles, DOCUMERICA: The Environmental Protection Agency's Program to Photographically Document Subjects of Environmental Concern, compiled 1972 - 1977.  The photo's official title is "FOX RIVER CHANNEL AT MENASHA, A PAPER MANUFACTURING CENTER ON LAKE WINNEBAGO." 

Most photos of Menasha seem to be taken from the other direction; many don't photograph from the Little Lake Butte des Morts side.  I think this composition really speaks to Menasha's identity and dependence on waterpower.
