Dual guage NWP pictures

"Narrow-gauge service between Sausalito and Pt. Reyes Station ceased in 1920. It is possible that some of the narrow gauge rails remained in place a little while after 1920, but they were probably removed as soon as possible because of the difficulty…"

" For pictures 3 and 6 I would guess the San Anselmo 'Y', looking towards Fairfax, just two slightly different views. Shame you can't read the signs on the businesses, that would probably clear it up."

John, I modeled the Bluffs as they were when Bob Hogan and I photographed them in 1961! If I did them as they were in 1953, my "era", they would be all wood! I have looked at several later pics and there appears to be more and more concrete and less and less wood. I think you did it just right!
