You are right, for I had forgotten about the earlier years of the
Is Charlie Sammons the owner of those files or just a custodian?
I didn't clarify that. My impression was that he was in charge of the Fair
Grounds, where they were stored and that he was also in control of them.
That is, what ever he said, is what would or could happen to them. For some
reason I carry the impression that he was the owner of the Fair Grounds; I'd
be curious to know if that's fact.

- 25 years ago I built a model of this building and its companion which
was torn down some years ago. I have no plans though, I just eyeballed
the dimensions from pictures that I took in 1972. Funny how I just
came across the negatives. They were on a roll that I was using to
take pictures of my wife's wedding shower at the Holiday Inn in
Johnstown. I was obliged to get lost for a while so I went down to
Fonda and took some pictures. I'll try to scan these soon.
Also, Willem Monster's Sacandagastation website is very nice. If he
can breath life into Sacandaga with his ambitious plans, that would be
great. Let's face it the Park has been dead since the Inn closed in
1974. I have a set of detail photos of the station before it was
vandalized and sadly debased by its conversion to a stable. I am
scanning these and burning a cdrom for him.
It's kind of a grim Autumn. I've been on unemployment since August.
I've suggested to my wife that maybe we should sell the house and move
back to Fulton County where being unemployed is no big deal. It's kind
of a grim look I got from her.
