  • More Shipping Memories

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Feb 8, 2023

    A continuation of the shipping memories. I would like to visit with one of those cattle producers of the past. To my knowledge the livestock owners got to accompany their product to market by riding in the caboose of that train. I do remember that many folks made purchases of furniture, groceries, and other supplies to be brought back home. My question, were they furnished an empty car, courtesy of the railroad, or did they have to “rent” a car for the trip home? I bet that they carried a bedroll for the trip coming and going. Maybe it was the...

    Feb 8, 2023

    Sept. 12, 1965 – Jan. 29, 2023 It's been said the kitchen is the heart of the home.
