    That cardboard rubber band gun would get a kid a lot of time off from school now a days. Come to think of it, it might have gotten you some time in the corner even back in 1954.

    I haven't quite figured out why this Shawnee, Oklahoma Santa Fe depot is in the Kansas Historical Society files, but not only is it in there, it still exists today in much the same form as a museum in Shawnee.

    Here are a few more pictures of sabotage of the Los Angeles (now California) Aqueduct shortly after it was completed.

    I've always been amused by this particular trestle, built with no decking. Riding in the train over the bridge must have seemed like you were like floating in the air - pulled by a levitating steam loco in slow motion. Gary

    Yes Doc, you are correct. Still runs to this day, started in the early 50's.
    I bet the Nannys don't let the people hang out of the cars like that anymore though.
    regards,Rod:D


    We rode that in 2010 and as I recall they now have bars on the windows to prevent that deviant behavior, still a fun ride though.

    Guy in middle is holding a Colt Monitor, the lightest automatic-fire 30.06 machine gun ever made. Wish I had one today. My Dad humped the military BAR version across China, Burma and India in War 2. He said how heavy the mil version was.

    BTW if those guys aren't Feds I would like to know who was sporting that armament. Spotlight on A-pillar suggests.

    That's also a 100 round "C" drum on the 1921 Thompson.

    A BAR man's life expectancy after hitting the beach was 1 minute in WWII & Korea. They were targeted because of the mass firepower.

    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>No clue if he could shoot but he was very fast on the draw and he could do some amazing things with those pistols!Very good at gun handling tricks in real life.

    He was in a episode on the old TV western "The Rifleman". Some great footage of his gun handling (real). Plot was he was all show & no go. Lucas saved his skin in the end of course.:D

    This picture is from the Los Angeles City Library archives and shows the Los Angeles Police Dept. Bank Robbery Squad. Shot was taken in 1927 and the car is a Studebaker (according to the library photo caption).

    :D If that photo of the guys with the Thompson and the BAR was in fact taken in 1927,that is PRE NFA act and those Thompsons were available to anyone across the counter of any sporting goods store or gun store in the nation.The "Monitor"version of the BAR was the CIVILIAN version that could also be purchased at any sporting goods store or gun dealer.Just a little trivia there.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.

    In a practical sense, they wanted the BAR man to fire short bursts, 3 or 4 rounds. Sustained fire would overheat the barrel quickly, and replacement was an armorer's job. I had the opportunity to fire one in the service, and the cyclic rate was pretty slow.
     
  25. WOW! Where is this located?
     
  26. This is in Victoria Australia and runs between Belgrave and Emerald Lake or on to Gembrook in the Dandenong Ranges. The bridge pictured is the Monbulk Creek Trestle bridge.

    Horn and Hardart automat. They originated in Philadelphia. I remember going shopping with my Mom in Center City Philly and eating at a Horn and Hardart's automat. Probably the originator of the fast food concept.
