Sally's Piermont




Floods, fairs, fires ,politics, hurricanes, celebrations of all kinds, historical houses, demolitions and the recent pier constructions are all recorded in Savage's extensive collection of Piermont documentation.
Sally has lived in Piermont since 1956, raised three children and developed her photography business, including teaching black and white darkroom in her house. In 1956 the paper mill of Robert Gair dominated the base of the pier, and was followed by other paperboard factories (Federal Paper; Clevepak). Savage was commissioned to photograph the factory both while it was in operation and during demolition.
In the 1970s Savage was commissioned, by the Library of Congress' Historical Buildings Survey, to take a set of photographs of Piermontís houses of historical significance.
