Artist's Description

The army abandoned this building in 1964 after it suffered damage in a massive earthquake. It is apparently very expensive to demolish because it is bomb proof and full of asbestos.
Whittier was a key army installation as one of only a handful of year round sea ports in Alaska. It was not safe to go inside, yet I could not resist.
