Ten Years and Counting - #2
Photo of the Month

        One of the first features introduced ten years ago was the Photo of the Month. The POM was a way to high light interesting photos and take the time to describe - as best we can – where the photo was taken and what is going on.
        Ten years later there are six POM Index Pages, one for each major category (streetcars, interurbans, Steam Railroads, Industry, Railfanning and Aerial) with a total of 103 photos. To aid the reader, once you have selected one of the six index pages you can scroll to the bottom of that index page to easily transfer to one of the other five index pages.
        When you have selected one of the individual photos to view you do not have to go back to the index page to transfer to the next photo. There are transfer selects at the top left corner of the page that will take you to the preceding or succeeding photo or return you to the index page.
        The first Photo of the Month, dated Oct. 2006, was a PRR, Sandusky Branch double header approaching Oakland Park Avenue in 1953. To see it and practice your transfer skills - click here.
