Malone, New York

Recruiting Posters

This small city is a few miles from the Canadian border in a fertile agricultural strip just north of the great Adirondack forest. After I shot this abandoned storefront on the town’s main street, I noticed a new recruiting center, around the corner, on a side street. Maybe the whole building was put up for sale and all tenants were forced to move. The display windows at the new office were a bit more spiffy, without the stray pieces of tape, but used exactly the same recruiting posters.

Hi Carl:
It seems the Marines didn’t read (probably this is too much to ask) Desiderius Erasmus Rotterdamus thinking on war: “war need massive and rigorous men, in whom there is a maximum of audacity and a minimum of reflection”.
