It's 1910, or there about, and one of the new rail lines from Chicago to Seattle has just opened for passenger service. Of all the stations on the new line there is only one natural log depot ... it's in Musselshell, Montana. Here are 4 cards featuring the station ...
|Musselshell, Montana, Depot|
Compare the following to the first card. It seems to be the same picture, with some color added and minus the smoke from the train's engine. No, we didn't do it with photoshop, but some postcard publisher must have back over 100 years ago. How? ... We don't know.
Our guess is ... the horse probably was the photographer's. A basic black and white photo must have been hand colored to produce the cards.
The first two cards featured a view of the depot from the back. The following two are views from the front. One thing is for sure ... We don't really know what the true colors were.
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
