    Very interesting seeing photos from this period. Several of these buildings have been fixed up and hold businesses now.

    Yeah, Quite a difference 40 years makes. A lot have gone due to weather and a lot have been fixed up. I've just started going through this stuff thats been in storage. Kinda fun to see some of the postings that are recent photos as compared to my old stuff. I have a bunch more of Greenhorn showing some of the relics we found still laying around. I'll post them in the next couple of days. Some of the bottle hunters will probably go nuts but in those days this stuff was all over the place.

    Thanks Laura. Comments like this make it worthwhile. I just hope I don't "overload" the site with too many photos. On another post, I tried linking the pics to my site to avoid taking up storage space on this site and hope it works. I guess they came out OK but I had a hard time putting in text with the photos. I'll work on it and see if I can get it resolved.
