Keystone Stairwell

Keystone Stairwell
This is the first time I used my Keystone 470PM Focus Free Message camera. I can't figure out why one of the edges of my negatives keep getting exposed.

The stairs in question used to be a rear exit to a glove factory that was located in that building. These stairs were tucked in there because right next to the factory, where the parking lot is now, there used to stand an old hotel on the corner. At one time, Norris City was a booming little town and had a railway station, three hotels, (and a motel on the outskirts of town), and was quite busy. The railroad tracks ran right through the middle of town and were located approximately about where I was standing in this picture. The train depot would have been about two blocks to the left of this building, within a block or two's walking distance of the hotels and downtown area. There was even a skating rink and a movie theatre within a block of this spot. This little town was hot!

I wonder what happened to the world? We've got more people in it, but less people are here. Are they inflating the population numbers? There must be some reason why they killed off Norris City when it was thriving so well. We've got the same amount of residents as back then, just nothing else. No businesses, no hotels, no theatre, no skating rink, no visitors, no train station, no trains. We haven't even got any street lights to direct traffic at intersections.
