Good Days Gone Cold Days is a series that started as a zine by myself, Helen Jones, and Sarah LaPonte. We started this project while living in a house in Braddock, Pennsylvania without heat, without doorknobs, without much insulation or electricity to speak of. Everything froze; dog water and chicken broth, yes, but also bananas, blocks of cheese, canned goods, bread, tortillas, hot toddies that weren't poured stiff enough, all the beer, toothpaste, telephones, lotion, and face astringent; there were ice slicks in the future kitchen and the pee jars were full and solid as yellow brick. I didn’t remain in Braddock, but Sarah did. I've returned when I could, always with a sense of nostalgia but eager to see what changes have occurred in the house, and to take some new photographs there in the shadow of the steel mill.
