Description 2009 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ~~ When I shot this photograph at the Haddam Neck (Connecticut) Fair on Labor Day 2009, I saw this wheel as just a component of a well-preserved antique grain grinder. When I began looking at it later, it brought to mind a fragment of William Morris's The Pilgrims of Hope poem cycle, Number Three - Sending to the War:
War in the world abroad a thousand leagues away, While custom's wheel goes round and day devoureth day. Peace at home! - what peace, while the rich man's mill is strife, And the poor is the grist that he grindeth, and life devoureth life?
