First Aid

For various reasons, mostly related to inertia, I haven’t been out shooting many new images lately. Fortunately (depending on how you look at it), I have quite a few images left over from a big documentary project I did in 2018-2019, so for the next few days, I’ll be posting some of the images that didn’t make the cut for the show.

In 2019, the 1950s-era Lubbock Municipal Auditorium and Coliseum were demolished; I was able to have full access to the facilities during the last year they were operational. It was a wonderful opportunity to document the place that held a lot of my childhood memories.

One thing I didn’t have a memory of – fortunately – was the first aid room. What I like about this image – but what I barely noticed when I made it – is the way the paint is worn away from the right-hand side of the passageway, showing decades of foot-falls in exactly the same spots.

  1. Glad you got to get some photos of this place. I live here in Lubbock, too, and attended many special occasions here. It was such a landmark for the city, and I wish they hadn’t torn it down.
