I had some time after a shoot today so I went down to
Finn Slough in Richmond. I'd heard about this "shantytown"
a few months ago and wanted to check it out. It was settled in the 1890s by some Finnish miners and loggers. An interesting bit, in keeping with Finnish tradition, one of the first buildings they constructed was a sauna. This place gives me ideas
about design/build communities. It'll be cool to go back
once everything's blooming again and see how it changes.
