The Newman buildings’ centennial celebration- a good ol’ time in Downtown Joplin

    Yesterday was a time for celebration in downtown Joplin… the Newman building (now serving as city hall) turned 100. To mark the occasion, an event was held that included a display of a different car for each decade— from a 1912 Model T Town Car to a 2010 Ferrari. Former employees of the Newman building also spoke about their experiences & the building.

    I joined forces with talented makeup artist/aesthetician Leah Patterson (see her site here). She applied time period makeup and then I took pictures of folks in front of the amazing assortment of vehicles. Some very fun shots out of the day… opening with the model T being pushed into place for the occasion!
