Thanks for the "heads up" Paul. After reading your message, I bid on
the book ( a 1958 edition) and I have received e-mail from E-Bay that
I was the successful bidder.
- Dan, that's great. You got it at a good price too. Someone had a copy at
the meeting the other night and had paid a bit more at one of the shows. It
was the second printing with the map in the back cover (Not having the map
is no loss). In that book are the seeds of what got me started researching
the FJ&G, probably Walt too. Dave Nestle was planning to publish a
centennial volume but was undercut when Bill Gordon republished Dave's work
in his book Trolleys Down the Mohawk. My research started while I was in
High School to provide a solid roster for the planned book as well as
digging out personal stories. What I am doing now is more than that volume
was to be, but it will be the fulfillment of that goal, nevertheless.
