Iron ore from Great Lakes boats. You can see more detail if you brighten the
photo.

There are many other steam- and transition-era photos in this
collection, but browsing from the root directory (truncating the URL) is
tedious and devoid of information about time and place. Does anyone
know of an interface to make that easier - especially one that might
include captions?

Dave Smith, really enjoying this trove of photos

Try:
http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/fsowhome.html
and try searching for any railroad relevant term that occurs to you.
The search will return a list of captions.
There's no interface with pages of thumbnails, if that's what you
had in mind - but with over 160,000 photos, that might not be too
pracitcal either.

So in doing some searching, I found an image of the corner of a gon that
looks like it has two horizontal panels instead of the vertical panels
on most gons. It also looks shorter:

Anybody know anything about this car?

Using the URL provided and entering a search topic (I tried "Pullman"
just for a test) yields what they call a "List View". There is a hot
link for a "Gallery view" which shows thumbnails!


regards,

Andy Miller
