Sandy River RR Farmington, ??
Found this post card on eBay. The postmark is 1914. My first thought was fuel wood storage for the SR&RL, that is why I bid on it. On careful study there are telegraph lines running behind the buildings and what looks like RR tracks and perhaps a switch stand in the lower left. The caption at the top of the photo sez: “Mt. Blue Range from Powder House Hill, Farmington, Me.” Hand written on the correspondence side is ‘Taken from Box Shops Hill’. The contents of the wood sheds looks to be some sort of sized lumber, not ruff split cord wood. Does anyone recognize the skyline or know if this is a railroad related business of 100 years ago along side the SR&RL or MEC in the Farmington area?
Unknown photographer August 1, 1914.
