Wow, that is an oldie. Very interesting and nice photo. I really enjoy the old photos you post, especially on the Great Lakes.

I remember as a kid in the 1950's walking all through railroad yards with no one saying anything as long as I stayed safe and didnt do dumb things. Now days people go ballastic if you just take a picture of a rail yard.

How true... No problems back then. Although people were maybe not as crazy as today... Maybe.

Thanks for posting your photos. They give us a look at the ships of a bygone era and are highly entertaining.
