Super Sharp Image From Irene Wagner


This photo from a logging camp rail yard is from Irene Wagner’s family and was probably a contact print from a very well-focused, glass negative. We know it isn’t from Alleghany County, North Carolina, as Alleghany never had a railroad. The Elkin-Alleghany venture never made it up the mountain. It stopped at the base of the Blue Ridge escarpment at Doughton, NC in Wilkes County.
There are two more photos coming. One, we think, is of the engine at far right and the other is of the engine second from left.
Anyone have any ideas about time and place? Calling all old codgers, lend us your expertise!
