WOW!!! WOW!!! and many more WOWS!!!
Thanks so very much to Kurt and Tree for the SPECTACULAR picture links and to Gunny ...it's so nice when we are both on the same team
... for giving this post a "sticky".
I just spent a delightful period of time going through all of the pictures and wishing they were much larger and in full color, but am very grateful for the vision they provided into the past.
RE: Watertown, N. Y., waterfront and factories (3rd photo from Kurt's post), what a great panoramic view when once scrolls (is that the correct term???) to the right!!! But, I am unable to figure out where the person who took the picture was standing, and what buildings are today in those spots.
: I get an error message when I try to access this link.
RE: The 2nd photo at the link Tree posted...."Rusticating in Sleepy Hollow", isn't the term "rusticating" just wonderful??? It is so "yesteryear", and reminds me of when people's lives were not so rush, rush, rush.
And while I thoroughly enjoyed all of the photos taken in the 1,000 Islands area, I especially drooled over the ones of Bonnie Castle and its interior.
Expect that Marc, or AJR have these photos listed somewhere on links available to us, but there are also some old pictures of Watertown at http://www.watertown-ny.gov/index.asp?NID=414
(look to the left of the screen for more photos to click on)
Two of my favorites were the last two at http://www.watertown-ny.gov/index.asp?NID=469
They are of the magnificent train station that was, SADLY!!!! torn down many years ago (think in the 1950's). I can remember being there many times as a child..to catch a Greyhound bus, or to take the train. Another connection for me is knowing that my grandfather (on my father's side) was one of the teamsters who drew material to help with the construction of that beautiful structure.
