Disguised Infrastructure

Apparently a banal bungalow of a type (ranch) that is common in Winnipeg, this pumping station (?) is disguised to blend in with the local domestic detached houses. The street number and utilities meter encourage the feeling of domesticity and the front door is in a similar overgrown state to the  houses that surround it. The neighbourhood, Wolseley, is an outpost for those still trying to live the counter culture as if the world were still as it was in 1970.  As you walk round the back the building’s secrets unfold.
