Thanks for the post. It brought back memories. Especially the pics of the guys working the rip tracks in the rail yards. I had a summer job doing that during my college years. The job hadn't changed much by the 60's. I've never been that dirty before or since, but it did encourage me to finish college.
Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.
Before my time,but great pics.And not an I-pod or cell phone in any pic.Would like to see a 2012 version of the pics now,phones glued to the ears,traffic jams,lines in the stores and every thing but relaxing.
