Poor protoype

Both my wife (the Geezerina) and I love railroading stuff. When we see an especially beat-up gondola car, one of us will say "Nice prototype!", referring to the gondola as great example for model railroading. The ideal model hobbyist will make the model look like the real thing. The real thing is the prototype for the model.

Max, North Dakota, is clean as a whistle, even in the embiggened view! Beautiful! As a model layout element, it would be too neat, too clean!

Max, North Dakota 1940

I found a 1962 photo of the New Max Hotel and the eatery next door. Under the photo is some interesting historical information.
