Work Around the Clock

Over a 24-hour period, on March 14, 2013, photographers documented Fort Scott’s workers for the A Day in the Life of Fort Scott’s Working World photo contest, part of the Gordon Parks Museum’s The Way We Worked in Kansas local project.

So, what did a day in the life of Fort Scott’s working world look like? Here’s a sample of what the cameras captured:

“This project has allowed the Gordon Parks Museum the opportunity to showcase the scope of Fort Scott’s working world, and to showcase our local photographers,” shared Jill Warford, executive director of the Gordon Parks Museum. “This has been an exciting grant to be a part of!”

The photographs are on exhibit at the Gordon Parks Museum through June 23. Click here for more information.
