Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
When writing posts I often think about all the changes that have happened over the past 100 years—but sometimes I’m surprised to discover that this blog also makes me more aware of little changes that occur from one year to the next.
For example, several days ago I went through my pictures to find one illustrate the recent post about Ruth taking the train. And, I was surprised to discover that the pictures of the tracks that I took in 2010 differed from the ones that I took in 2012. In 2012 there was a piece of equipment by the tracks that hadn’t been there two years before.
Any idea why what is the purpose of the new equipment?
