    Default Here we go with another Montana town, Marysville.

    This was a great one. Lotsa buildings left and some neat old cars. I'll followup in another couple of days with more on this town.

    Were these also taken ca. 1970? I bet those buildings are rubble now.

    I had enough seniority at work and I would save up my vacation time and take a month at a time. I'd plan these trips using topo maps and reference books. A couple of the other guys at work would do the same thing so we could travel together and hit some of these towns which were way off the beaten path. That way if we got stuck, we always had help. It's fun now to share these old photos so I'm glad you guys are enjoying this stuff. Thank fer the note Danny and I'll keep sticking this junk up here until ya get tired of it.

    Default Tired! NEVER!!!!

    Now you just listen here mister, you ol timers are gold, gold for information and realy cool pictures. I for one love signing in on the forum and seeing photos! The older the better. Whilst i am here i will say thanks to everyone who does contribute stories and photos. The stuff mainmanwalking posted about the space launch site blew me away. Joel and Vulture have so much knowledge on Arizona, and you mr dwinslow, giving us the chance to see ghost towns in there prime,awsome.I show my Aussie mates stuff on this site all the time, and they just stare in disbelief at the photos and the history. Honestly I have mates who thought, Billy The Kid and Jesse James were invented by Hollywood, let alone convince them that people actualy abandon whole towns for perfectly logical reasons.
    Dinkum!
