Lois Wiederrecht-Finke studying at the Blue Top Motel, 1990s

Dublin Core

Description

The back of Lois Wiederrecht-Finke as she studies at a desk in a Blue Top Motel cottage. A rotary phone sits on the desk to her left; a turned on lamp to the right.

As a commuter student to the University of Iowa, she stayed at the Blue Top once a week. Upon learning the owners Larry and Judy (Howe) Smith planned to close down the business, she began a project of taking photographs to document and preserve the motel (Wiederrecht-Finke, p. xv-xvi). These photographs were later featured in a book titled The Blue Top Motel, published in 2003.
