PHOTOGRAPHY BY THE AUTHOR
The city of Clinton on my Dixon, Wyanet & Lake Superior is a large in dustrial town . I wanted buildings for Clinton that would convey a "big city"
feel and serve as a backdrop. This re quires structures four to six stories high, two and three story structures with 1 5- or 20-foot ceilings and the use of vert ical accents on the smaller (two story) structures . Clinton is still under construction and may even be moved
