No. 3 at Chapleau, Ontario, 1944

[At Chapleau, Ontario, looking down from an overhead bridge at the C.P.R. No.3 at 12.15 noon on February 20, 1944 - annotation beside photo written by Bill Wood.]

I’ve recently come into possession of a number of family photo albums I never knew existed. A few belonged to my late Uncle Bill: William Henry Wood who died in 1972. I didn’t know him, or much about him, so his small collection of rather well taken photos of railroad-related subjects came as quite a surprise. I’m not a big steam-era fan, but I thought I’d go ahead and post a few photos now-and-then as they are a fascinating record of a time long past.
