windmills Documenting the Murphy windmill rebuild

In May 2008, Ron Henggeler was passing the Murphy windmill site in Golden Gate Park, where work had newly started on preparing the old base for the windmill rebuild. Shawn Connelly, the chief engineer working on the project, saw him photographing the work, and invited him in to take a closer look.

Since then, Ron has returned to the work many times, building up a detailed photographic record of the rebuild. There's currently over 300 photos included, ranging up to late June 2011, with I'm sure many more to come as the tower gets completed and fitted out.
