Sepia Saturday~ Waiting for the Governor

Saturday, September 10, 2011


Alan's Prompt for Sepia Saturday 91 is a photo entitled "President Wilson on a speaking Tour" The photo shows President Woodrow Wilson Speaking  to a couple from a train in 1919. Staying on Theme this week I offer a photo from 1914 of the town folk of Ephraim gathered together at the old train Station waiting to welcome the Governor of the state. The train station no longer stands but the home in the back ground built by pioneers in the 1880's still remains. The little house has seen some changes over the last 130 years but still holds much of its original old charm, it also just happens to be where my hubby and I have called home for over a decade.

I love old train stations. It's too bad most of them are gone.

I love trains and too bad the schedules and routes are so restricted in the US these days.

That’s great that your own house appears in the photo - even more interesting than the townsfolk waiting to welcome a long forgotten governor.

A perfect match for my featured image. One of these days I will get to tour your country properly with adequate time to sample communities such as yours.

I love the whole idea of everyone in town gathering at the train station to greet dignitaries etc. I also love that your house is in the photo!

Few of the train stations remain but the few that do are treasures. They make great goals for rides on the Rails-to-Trails circuits.

The house has wonderful potential as a subject for then-and-now treatment!

That's what I call an historic photo. I hope you have it framed and hung on the wall in your house.

Wow, your house and the entire town coming to the train station (which was such the thing to do!) to see the Governor!

What a welcome for the Governor! But best of all is having your house in the picture.
