Not Escanaba. It's 1971 that's me in the white shirt (not that that helps).

The Lower Harbor Ore Dock in Marquette. Still stands but without the approach trestle.

A train and an ice jam. The track is gone but the bridge remains.

I saw that one last night and wondered how many postcards of that same spot had been made.

So on to something fresher. It's the winter of 67/68 and the eve of the Penn Central merger. The scene looks very much like this today though the trees are taller, the rail is welded and the locomotives are newer.
