Lens & Pen has launched a new website (in addition to Dammingtheosage.com and our publishing site beautifulozarks.com). HYPERCOMMON.com will be a platform for a wide range of interests, encompassing our more than passing interest in pop culture. One of those varied interests is DAMS – worldwide, as well as those on the Osage River system.
Recently we acquired some new-to-us, old photos of Louis Egan along with more info on the criminals who built Bagnell Dam and Lake of the Ozarks.
Two posts elaborating on information we had in Damming the Osage are now posted on HYPERCOMMON.COM.
See the set up in Union Electric’s Louis Egan: “I’m having the finest time in the world”
But after hubris comes – The Fall of Union Electric’s Louis Egan
Feel free to poke around on HYPERCOMMON.COM, which, in addition to DAMs, includes musing on hillbillies (recent posts on the iconic outhouse), souvenirs (“The most hideous souvenir EVER?”), small towns (the Buffalos of Buffalo), tourism (yes, we are looking at Branson), and confessions – which will handle a multitude of (mostly esthetic) sins!
