“Manchester had often been referred to as “Dog Town.” The earliest mention is found in an 1887 Richmond Times newspaper article. Benjamin Weisiger writes that there have been a lot of theories but the most common explanation by old-timers refers to the large number of dogs in Manchester “Everybody had a dog.” The late Major John Wright said that the name originated among students at old John Marshall High School just before World War I, when the school received an influx of Manchester students after consolidation. Wright felt that it was not intended as a compliment but the term has stuck to the area.”
I shot some photos in RAW and am forcing myself to learn LightRoom, some roughcuts taken last evening at Dogtown Dance Theatre. Wonderful Show!
Had some time the next morning to do a few more and I am starting to like LightRoom. Who say’s you can’t teach a old “dog” new tricks, (chuckle).
Will correct this series of Autumn Ward when I have time, special Thanks to my dance friends in helping me evolve with my work. I haven’t had the time or energy to do this as of late.
There was a male belly dancer that was exceptional, didn’t get a program so clueless who he was?
