About the Book
This 80-page book contains images taken in Historic South Tacoma, a working-class neighborhood in Tacoma, Washington. These photographs show a neighborhood that's often been overlooked but has the potential to again become an urban center with a history strongly tied to Tacoma's transportation industry.

Justin's just a regular guy who grew up in Tacoma, Washington, found himself living and working in Russia, and ended up back in Tacoma (of course, there was a stop or two along the way). He enjoys taking photographs in order to document what he considers the fast-disappearing element of uniqueness some call Americana: you know, those nostalgic images that remind you of what is different about your home compared to anywhere else, the people with class and style, the neon signs that make you smile, the local diner, and the mom-and-pop shops.
