Abstract:
Carrying a Minolta camera and a North Carolina road map, Mike Lassiter has traveled 30,000 of the state's 52,699 square miles. Lassiter's quest is to preserve family-owned businesses on film before this piece of Americana disappears forever. Many of these businesses are gathering places in small communities; some have operated for a century or more and have become institutions in their towns. Lassiter has traveled the state for the past six years and ended his quest in March 2005. He hopes to publish his collection of photographs and has received some interest from publishing houses.
