Tradition

The Washington Gas Light Co. remains the utility's name today.

Main St USA

That's a great photo. Well exposed, wide tonal range and tons of detail. The clouds make it pop.
B&W is still hard to beat.

Gas-powered absorption refrigerators are still used in RVs and remote homes off the electrical grid.

Every spring I help open a friend's cabin the north woods, and "did you light the refrigerator?" always makes me laugh.

At the top of my first hot rod wish list was a 1937 Ford coupe. That was in '53 and I still haven't found one.
