Photo by Scott Beseler
This is a picture that was taken for the Rivertown Breakdown held at the Southgate House this past June (2008), which is a yearly benefit, organized by Jake Speed, to help clean up the Ohio River. Pictured from left to right:
Yvan Verbesselt and Chico Converse of Lagniappe; Chris Cusentino of The Turkeys and Lagniappe; Jake Speed of Jake Speed and The Freddies; Lance Kaufman of The Stardevils; Benny Harnich of The Queen City Zapatistas; and Norman Converse, Chico's "dowg" in the foreground.
Some of you may wonder why am I posting this photo here now. Well, it was just sent to me, and this blog was not 'yet born' when the Rivertown Breakdown was happening. But many of us have been living like the "old days with no power" ....Back when rivers were a major source of power and transportation for many people. So this picture is not a total non-sequitur. See Scott's site listed in the Interesting Links section for lots more photographs of Yvan, Chico, Cuz and the gang. Woof to Norman!
