Note: In his signature nocturne style George Sotter depicts a grain mill in Miner’s Mills, Pennsylvania. Golden light glows through the windows contrasting against the cool night sky and translucent snowbanks. The Miner Hillard Milling Company was first established in the area in 1795, and later rebuilt in 1824 and 1912 before closing in 1966. Sotter captures the company in action as smoke rises from the tall stacks.
