Writing about Milwaukee

Lithgow, Detroit, Kellyville, Goff's Oak ... Continuing my preoccupation with ‘crap places’, I’ve been writing about Milwaukee ...

Downtown Milwaukee

According to my brother, who lives in the US, the best thing about Milwaukee is its proximity to Chicago—about an hour and a half’s drive. But I disagree, I like the place.

Jones Island, Milwaukee

Those old industrial towns and cities have a particular geography and civic architecture that remind us of the forgotten social contract between the ‘brotherhood’ of workers and the company bosses.
