Ohio.................Urbana 1 2 3  PRR X EL    PRR
Three great black and white shots of Urbana. The railroad that went overhead was a branch of the NYC. At one time it crossed at grade with the Pennsy and Erie. I'm not sure when the Central elevated the line.

JUNE 6

Ohio..................Grafton  B&O X NYC   NYC
I believe the tower was saved and restored. Nice shot of the tower with a B&O caboose.
June 6th marks the 73rd Anniversary of the D Day invasion. Did not hear much about it on the news. Within 10 years all American history will not be be remembered or taught in schools or universities. Except the stuff about how mean,oppressive and imperialistic the United States has been....We do have a few skeletons in our closet but come on.....

JULY
   After I felt better I should have just gone ahead and posted my small backlog....Well I didn't and today(July 5) I went back to the hospital. They have determined that I have arthritis. I got sufficiently doped up to allow me to limp to the computer. As stated above I have a small backlog of stuff;one or two shots are very rare. I'll make a blanket appy polly loggy to the guys that sent me said pictures. I will post as soon as I am able. Again I'm sorry for all this. I have not been a good steward of this sacred tower knowledge but things SHOULD be better....hopefully soon.
