July 1973 Milwaukee 873

The Milwaukee was one of Dad’s favorite roads to photograph.

He ( and later we ) would find and photograph the Milwaukee Road in our northern states summer trips.

This is from July 1973, Dad was working in the Portland office of his company and that meant weekends on the Milwaukee & SP&S instead of coming back to the SF Bay Area every weekend.

Here we have a tired slide that was shot on the dark side and has age spots – like me !

It looks a bit like a H.O. Model on my PC Screen.

Summer grass punctuated by a miniature monolith. Abandoned grey aged plank church, cows in distant, poles, wires and a pallet under the wire and along the old style concrete road way posts.

I really like it.
