Tim Lane's Hopeville Journal

Tim Lane's Hopeville Journal

Summer 2011. Let's say you enter Hopeville from the north side, from Mullanphy Street, a couple of blocks east of First Street. On the left is a big sign that reads "Welcome to Hopeville, USA."

So begins RFT contributing artist Tim Lane's illustrated look at Hopeville, a homeless camp on the St. Louis riverfront just north of downtown.

The dirtiness and scars of reality aren't necessary all the time and I like the focus on the people. This is a gorgeous work of a small piece of St. Louis living history, and wouldn't have been as memorable in photographs.

Mr Lane, How about some illustrations showing what hopeville really look like , the 40OZ beer cans, the empty Night Train and MD20/20 bottles, the used needles. this would be more of an accurate depiction of hopeville
