Hello everyone

In that picture at
<http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/FindingAids/dynaweb/calher/strike/figures/I0015
605A.jpg> there is also a totally cool Espee USRA 40' composite gondola. If
I recall correctly,the El Paso & Southwestern got 300 of these from the
USRA,and of course the EP&SW was in the 20's merged with the Espee.Never
thought I'd see a picture of one...makes reading the e-mail fun!!!

How can you see this in a rather small (20k) image? I tried downloading
it and enlarging it in Photoshop, but there is no detail there at all. Is
there a link to a larger version somewhere on the site?

Tony,

If you click on the thumbnail image, it will blow itself up. IIRC, there
are three resolutions. One is positively gargantuan.

Kind regards,

Tony, the site had a selector below each image, for medium and for high
resolution. LRK>

OK, I clicked on the thumbnail, the image blew itself up, now I've
got Hills Bros. coffee all over my keyboard, a crowd of men in hats
pouring out of my monitor - and a sore thumbnail. I think I'll try
the same thing with that Farrah Fawcett JPEG.

I can't seem to get to that picture (jpg number). I did get to the
strike and have a listing of 247 pictures. Could someone tell me the
picture number?

Jon, the problem is that the original post with the URL has a carriage
return in it. Try this one:

Sorry Tony,
Yours also has a carriage return. I tried retyping the entire line but
it won't go there. Doing a search for that jpg after I get to the strike
page get nothing.Jon Miller

You are right, Jon. That's a carriage return put in by my e-mail program.
Here's what I did: cut and paste the intact line, then add the final part
by typing, then carriage return in your browser to request the location.

Jon,

Try this URL: http://www.oac.cdlib.org:80/dynaweb/ead/calher/strike/ .
Then click on container list on the menu at left. When the new window
opens at right, scroll down to #67. Finally, click on medium or high
resolution, your choice.

While you are at it, take a look at the other pictures here. Lots of
great detail--clothing, vehicles, signs, architecture, etc., and many
have freight cars or locomotives.

Kind regards,


Garth G. Groff

Thanks Tony,
I finally got there. Nice ATSF auto box (Fe-Q maybe) in the background
also. Picture has note of #67 and that is the picture number. Would sure
like to have these pictures in 8x10 glossy. So much information there
especially for my time period. I don't think a lot changed between then and
'41.

Jon, these photos are in the UC Berkeley library. You could contact them
about prints; and there are MANY more from that period. Just the ones from
the 1934 strike contain many RR items. Browse the Web site from which that
one shot comes and you will find a lot more fine material.

Note also the Utah Coal Route GS gondola directly behind the SP (ex-EP&SW)
gondola and, directly above the lamp post, a 36' Delaware & Hudson wood box
car. Plus, of course, a whole bunch of SP B-50-15s. A photo that's full
of good stuff!

Richard,

It appears as if the two SP box cars to the extreme right (above the USRA
gon) have smaller medallions. This would indicate that they are B-50-16s.
