Talky Tuesday #79

Last week’s “WW #121” was also published in Kaseman’s “Story of the Susquehanna & New York“, p.86. In this photo, Steve VanGorder lowers the waterspout at Cold Spring for one of the last times as abandonment reached that location. Charles Kilmer looks on from the tender side.

We are indebted to Mr. VanGorder for taking so many photographs of the S&NY in the late ’30’s and early ’40’s. Most of the photos from Cal’s Classics on this site were taken by him. I have credited Mr. VanGorder where the notes on the back of the photos clearly state he is the original author. Without his photos, this site would not exist; and the┬ápast record of the S&NY for the future historian would be that much more incomplete.

Talky Tuesday #78

Last week’s “WW #120” is a lonely view of a water tank standing guard over the S&NY mainline. I am unsure of the location, possibly Cold Spring. And it does look cold in this probable early spring view. No snow on the ground, but the bare trees would offer little relief from any wind coming down the valley. You can be sure the water in the tank is barely above freezing…
