Every once in a while YouTube recommends a good video that I might not have found otherwise...today they recommended this film:
I also enjoyed, from the same YouTube channel, this film on the canalization of the Ohio River from 1929, which includes lots of sternwheeler footage taken in Pittsburg, Cincinatti, and Louisville:
Interesting clips Jack. :-)
I thought some here would be interested. Sorry for butchering the spelling of Cincinnati.
I found the second film particularly interesting...45 years ago I went to work for a mechanical contractor based in Portland ME; in the 10 years I worked for them we did several projects for Gulf Oil on Neville Island PA and one project for ARCO in Steubenville OH...the upper Ohio River valley was pretty grim when I was there; it's hard to imagine how much dirtier it was in the "old days" in Pittsburgh until you see films like this!
Jack, very, very cool. Thanks for sharing.
A few months ago there was an employee badge from the DTI railroad with the 20ís T radiator shell behind a locomotive. It sold for around $450 which was good money but I thought it would go higher with the cross collectability.
Henry bought 200 992b Hamilton watches for the DT&I,and i would to find one!!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
It sticks in my mind that when my father was a kid, he and his friends called it Dog Turd & Ice. Kids.
