FIFTH & LUDLOW

Fifth & Ludlow is a project that I've been working on (on and off) since the spring of 2017. I've turned it into a five-part series that will be released on December 2, 2019.

In 2008, my friend's parents were remodeling an original bathroom in their 1927 house. When the plumbers lifted the cast iron tub from the floor, underneath was a letter and two envelopes -- all preserved in time.

The letter, from a man simply named "Will" is vague, secretive, and mysterious. The envelopes paint an even more confusing picture. 

With Fifth & Ludlow, I aim to the story of 1920s Dayton through the lens of the letter, and expose the answers to the countless questions it raises.

This series is made possible by a generous grant from the Montgomery County Arts & Cultural District

with assistance from Culture Works as well as additional funding from 91.3 WYSO
