A couple of shots of the bus garage/shop taken Monday morning. The north wall has been tinned and the crew was working on the west wall when these photos were taken. When finished they will be able to park 8 buses in the 4 large bays to the right. The front part of the shop will be made so you can drive a bus inside to be worked on.

East Street looking south from the Elementary School in the top photo and north from the same spot in the lower photo. The old surface has been torn up and turned to gravel in preparation for the CRABS treatment which was to have taken place last week but has been delayed until next week. It’s already much smoother to drive on than the network of potholes and patches that it had been. Click on each photo for a larger view..

I purchased an antique camera from a 2nd hand shop in Craigmont earlier this year, which contained a roll of exposed film. The enclosed image was the only surviving exposure. It is likely the 3 children shown were from the local area. The film dates to a probable timeframe of the 1940’s & 50’s (Kodak “Verichrome”). I would hope you would be interested in publishing this photo in order that someone would be able to identify the children & perhaps have a further story to go with the image.

We ran this photo two weeks ago asking what it was. Judy Klapprich Uhlenkott said she got quite a few responses with the best answer being they are hog holder tongs used to hold a hog’s snout while you inserted a large ring. Do a search on Hills hog tongs on google and you will find several very similar tools. Click on the photo for a larger view.
