A Sepia Saturday sharing.
Come over there (the UK for lots of them) and see what others have posted for this theme.
A hospital train kitchen. Mmm, I can't think of a single photo that I have which would relate to this theme.
So I shall go trolling along in old photos and see what is available anyway. I don't have as many treasures as some of those who post here. But I am glad to share what I have.
My great grandfather on my mother's side was a conductor on passenger trains from the earliest times in Texas.
An old map of the railroad which went through San Antonio, where my great-grandparents lived most of their lives.
My grandfather on my father's side made a nick-name for me, which I always thought might have something to do with a particular train name..."Sunshine Special."

Mecklenberg, Schwerin, Germany. I don't know exactly when he came to the US, but by 1900 he was in the census for San Antonio, TX. He married Eugenia Almeta Booth and had 4 daughters, the oldest of whom was my grandmother in 1898. He died in San Antonio on 7 Nov 1946.
