Photo of the Week
July 31, 2016
Below the black and white blow up is a scan of an old colorized post card pointing in the direction of downtown Gorgona. I can imagine that photographer of the above photo was at the top of the stairs in the colorized post card and then in reverse, the photographer that took the photo below was up by the old lodge.
Another interesting thing about the colorized photo below is the train track line. These tracks split the town of Gorgona and also split the Gorgona islands when the lake flooded. When I used to search the Gorgona islands for bottle and relics, this passage way was still there and very interesting as this is the same passage way that the original 1855 railroad line ran. The old Gorgona train station which I have posted photos of in the past was along these tracks. I did some searching on Google Maps this week and that passage way is all filled in now with dredge and dozer fill. So much for that historical area!
Gorgona was quite the town in it's days and considered one of the older and larger towns.
I just love these old
comparisons of the days gone by and forgotten by many.
