Granddad the RR Cop

My grandfather worked for the Seaboard Air Line. He was a railroad policeman and was killed in a depot robbery at Esom Hill, Georgia, in 1931.

Along with his picture, there is a picture of his Seaboard Air Line badge.

No Hunting?

No Doubt

That this is a good Sailor view. Great prop wash from the ship, a narrow channel. What else could a great seaman want.

Just beautiful!

Seaboard Line

Seaboard Air Line operated trains all over the Southeast including a run to Miami. After mergers and remergers, the tracks are still there.

"Air Line" was a common metaphor for the shortest distance between two points -- a more direct route than the competition.

That looks like a view from the rear of City Hall towards Hutchinson Island and S.C. beyond. Now home to the Convention Center and Westin Golf resort (also once a garbage dump & cemetery).

The big boat

is the U.S.S. City of Montgomery, launched in 1910 at Newport News.
