Title: Monson Photo
Post by: Keith Taylor on January 23, 2012, 05:36:54 PM
I recently acquired some miniature RR photos and in with the group were two Monson photos.
I don't know if these are common images, but I would be interested to hear what you folks think.

The Monson Historical Society has posted many historical photos of Monson, including some Monson RR and many slate quarry photos, on the Maine Memory Network. The MMN website, to which the Town of Monson website has a link (look first under Monson Historical Society), has a zoom feature that allows close scrutiny of the photos.
