Geologist seeks info and photos of Senoia gin

I am a geologist with that Georgia Voluntary Brownfield Program and I am working on a poster presentation for the 2013 Brownfields Conference that will be held in Atlanta this year.

The poster is about the former McKnight Gin property in how it went from an EPA Emergency removal action to what it is today.

I want to make sure I present the personal side of it from the people rallying to help Paul McKnight with all the legal battles to the studio purchasing the property to prevent big box store coming in and changing the towns landscape.

I was hoping that you had photos that I could use of Senoia prior to redevelopment, McKnight Gin in its prime, any related to the drum removal, and associated articles.

I will credit The Citizen with any photos, articles, and information that I use in my poster presentation.

I really appreciate any help or guidance you may have to help me track down the information that I am looking for. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions, concerns, or what ever.

I am not having much luck so any help is greatly appreciated.
