Timmc, what the heck took you to Libya? I saw a bunch of pictures that one of our aeromagnetic crew took there about 10 years ago. Definitely looked like one of the best Roman ruins to see.

Leptis is indeed amazing. Wonder what it's like now?

Those are great Cosmic. Someone I work with was actually born and raised in Trona. Here is another good one.

Thanks Kath. With everything gray and rainy and cold here now, it was nice to pull up that reminder of last summer and post it.

This is a really wonderful thread.

WHOA, Tobia!
For a second there I had to take a double take.

I thought at first you had pics of the same train wreck I have.
but the train numbers are different.

Here are some of the other pics I found in the miners shack
Theodore Roosevelt San Francisco Parade 1903
Before the earth quake. From some of the research I've done,
I believe some of the photos are of Market Street.

Cosmic, I thought the same thing and went to look at mine and then decided to post. Train gage is different as well. Most of the old pics I post are ones I had access to as a teacher. I would use them in teaching with powerpoint. I wish I could give proper credit to the photographers or collections; but I have lost track over time.

The average number of trips in a steamboat's short life was a remarkably low 20 trips as they were lost in the treacherous navigation of the river and the dangers of boiler explosions. Locals made and lost fortune's insuring the main cargo of cotton and the ships themselves. I used to have a figure for the cost of building one; but can't locate it now.

Local train schedule from late 1800's. The Midland train station was at the border of my property.
you can now find as many payphones as you could telegraphs in 1895.
