my photos, my thoughts
Those old cars could rumble through pretty deep water, eh. BTW, Noannie is my childhood nickname, and my husband's name for me.
I'm not sure what that type of bridge is called? A half wheel bridge? The shape caught my eye right away. We had driven past a pretty little white bridge of the same type several times on our way to & from visiting friends in Nevada until finally, one day, I had my husband turn off the highway & park so I could get out & photograph it. We were on private property, but no one seemed to be around except a couple of cows & I was pretty sure they wouldn't say anything.
I love coming across old newspapers. I can pass many an hour reading old news.
The cars of those days were unrelaible anyway, without having to drive through water up to the running boad.
Oh, and welcome to Sepia Saturday. I look forward to seeing more of your posts.
Hello and welcome I'm new as wellFirst I must say your blog picture at the top is lovely I really like it!How nice you found cutting from papers with your mums photosJackieScrapbangwallop
Goodness! I wonder what made the driver of that car think he could make it through. Well, maybe he did. Very interesting photo and story.Welcome to Sepia Saturday.
An aunt and uncle gave me the nickname. I cherish it because of them.
I do too, Adrian, but my goodness they were so wide! It's hard for my short arms to manage them.
Gail, I had to click on it to enlarge it to answer your question. It was denoted as a wagon bridge in the article.
thank you, Brett!
thank you, Wendy. It was one of the articles my momma had saved. All the others had to do with family. So, maybe...
You're going to be a smash hit on Sepia Saturdays, Nonnie! Great old newspaper shot -- look forward to more!
Welcome Nonnie and I'm looking forward to future posts.
I'm trying to imagine the damage a foot of frozen ice could do on a road. The contraction and expansion must have been interesting. Wish there were photos showing cars stuck in that much ice.And poor old soul having to eat warm biscuits.
It's hard to imagine a flood in Winter. Our floods happen in Summer down under. Though I'm happy to be corrected.
The weather must have changed rapidly for the flood to freeze.
A warm welcome to Sepia Saturday Nonnie, and you've made a great start with this interesting newsclip. We have a facebook Group too which you may enjoy.Marilyn (co-admin)
Here's video of a car abandoned during the recent flood in Toronto.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPpBiITlQTM
I share your love of old newspapers and their photos. They seem to capture the age so well. And a big welcome to Sepia Saturday. Good to have you on board.
thank you, Alan, for the warm welcome!
My grandma was known as Ninnie!!! This scene looked dramatic enough for those days. Nice beginning for you. :)~ HUGZ
Welcome to Sepia Saturday. I hope that you enjoy it as much and I do. A great start.
It's always fascinating reading old newspapers, however mundane the article happens to be. This is interesting so that's a bonus.
