More ICC Photos
- I uploaded another group of photos to the archive. Also removed the contact sheets
since they take a lot of space and aren't very clear. Check out #108, the little electric
station at Perry St. Still referred to as Chuck's Fairgrounds in photos from the
1970's. Were there fairgrounds nearby? Trolley main ran down Miller St. Track
was in place until early sixties. Maybe if you are local, you'll want to cruise the
street and see if any artifacts are still evident. It's easy to pick out eye-hooks
on old utility poles that held the overhead. Track section still remained in
the sidewalk right near the Fairgrounds station. Wonder if it's still there.
I will have to check on the eye-hooks but I'm not sure the section of
trolley rail still remains in the sidewalk. I remember it being there for
years, but I think they did some work in there a few years back and it might
have been taken out. I haven't checked lately but I will have to take a
look next time I'm home.
They just put an addition on the trolley station---looks like a garage with
a big overhead door---looks like they want to park a vehicle of some kind in
there. The addition covers over the side where the steam right-of-way was
and is almost the size of the original building.
I believe The Johnstown Fairgrounds were located near the corner of Miller
and Perry streets. The Gloversville/Johnstown Railtrail ends right near
the spot. Kings Junction wasn't too far from this either if I'm not
mistaken. It may have been closer or near where present day Route 30a is.
- I uploaded #127 through #142 to the Onelist Archive. Check them out.
My TIF scans are better
quality, but as I said, they use up too much space. I'd like to put
then whole collection on a CD-ROM later in the year. Soon as the pain
of buying the film scanner wears off, maybe I'll buy a CD-ROM burner.
