    Thanks Michael and Martin!

    Ivíe admired Walker Evansí work along with other FSA photographers since the early 70ís. Thank you for your comments.

    Photo 7 is Hank Greenways store just a few minutes from my house. I shot the image in 1976 but unfortunately the store was closed a few years later. The store still stands and the owner has kept it from decay but it doubtful that it will ever reopen. Iíll post others from the store soon. Here are two I think I posted earlier in the thread but no harm in posting them again. The gentleman on the counter was the retired sheriff and the man standing is Hank Greenway the owner. Honk was the highway commissioner in the county.

    It was a rainy day today so I started going through my hard drives looking for forgotten scans of old images. Here are a few shots from twenty five or more years ago.

    Good to see you preserved this mural with a photo. I live in a small town in East Tennessee and our post office is over one hundred years old. The Tennessee Valley Authority brought electricity and flood control into the valley in the 1930’s and two post offices, ours and one just a short distance south of us, have beautiful murals depicting TVA building the electrical grid and dam in our town. I got permission to photograph them but need to get serious and do additional photos.

    Thanks for posting.

    Fifty years ago I ran across an old guy that had two full size steam locomotives and three steam tractors and track around his property to run his trains on. His hobby was steam power and giving the kids in the area rides on his trains. He had several antique train cars and a Nash Metropolitan that was setup to run in the rails.
