Author seeking train photos

Friday, May 22, 2009

Dear Editor:

My name is Harry Graves. I am currently finishing a two-volume photo history of Indiana train wrecks.

I am writing as I am looking for a few more photos so that as many communities as possible can be included. This has been a 10-year process, and I have already acquired over 3,000 photos.

The books will be printed in two volumes, No. 1 being the steam era, which will cover up until about 1950. The second volume covers the modern era, from 1950 until the present.

Anyone that contributes photos to this work will receive credit in the books. Anyone with photos that I can use can send them to: Book Project, PO Box 272, Salem, IN 47167, or I can be e-mailed at capt_graves@peoplepc.com.
