At one time the Stevens Paper Company operated two mills in Westfield. . . the lower mill, commonly known as the Mill at Crane Pond, and a smaller mill upstream off Granville Road, simply known as the Upper Mill. Stevens also had mills in South Hadley Falls, MA, and Windsor, CT (which I believe is still operational).
This was a new kind of shoot for me. I’ve never done publicity photos for a band before. One of our favorite swing bands, The O-Tones, has a new lead guitar and vocalist. When they asked me to shoot their performance at Stanley Park it was an opportunity to expand my photographic horizons. If you’re looking for great band for a wedding or other event check them out.
