If not for working with the Herschel Supply Co. for STAG, I'd probably have never discovered this fella. Based in Vancouver, BC, Stephen Wilde usually shoots mountain bikers and adventure athletes, but took some time away from the trails to lend some mood to these backpacks.

My good friend Leighton Dancy recently travelled to the time warp of a town that is Galveston, TX to photograph the abandoned railcars of this once stately city. Long ago the capital of The Republic of Texas and one of the busiest ports in the nation, Galveston was all but destroyed by a hurricane in 1900 and never fully recovered from the storm. The natural disaster remains the deadliest in American history. So, I don't know when these trains stopped running (I'd imagine probably not until the 50s), but in many ways they've gone the same way of the city that began its deterioration over 100 years ago. Beautiful work Leighton.
