Watch for it Wednesday?

Just when you thought you knew our pattern — we go on & change it! This month, in honor of our 1st anniversary as a Commons member, we’re releasing a new set each week. And, of course, we’re beginning where we began and adding some fabulous pictures to our Flickr Commons Williams Collection

What treasures will you find this week? Workers, logs, trains, bridges – oh my! Yes, it’s a set dedicated to “Railroads and Trains” in the Gerald Williams Collection.

Loading logs in Clatskanie, cruising through Cow Creek Canon, standing on the tracks near Seaside, traveling a trestle through the timber belt … This set is full of beautiful black & whites, as well as full color postcards from the Williams Collection. And who can resist the visual proof for the “Highest piling bridge in the world, P.R. & N. Railroad” or the “Donkey engine in the Willamette Valley”? And for those of us in the mid-Willamette Valley, check out the “Oregon Electric train passing through Albany, Oregon”!
