A ticket issued in 1954 for a trip on the Canadian Pacific Railroad. I wonder where the Labelles were traveling, and why.This ticket was part of the treasure I brought home from my friend's place - a box of older items cleared out from her basement.
Waiting on the platform, they may have kept their eyes on the track, and an ear out for the sound of the oncoming train.This was just a photo I once took through a car window. I smudged out the bottom left hand corner to rid the image of the side mirror.
Time to board.This railroad car now resides in Kingston, Ontario. You can read about its restoration project here. I snapped this shot while visiting my son, when he attended Kingston's RMC.
Madame Labelle might have brought a book along for the ride.Another item from the box of treasures. This copy of Julius Caesar was printed in 1937.
Monsieur Labelle probably made sure he had his trusty camera for photo opportunities.This was my second favourite find in the bunch (the first being the Folding Autographic Brownie seen here). A Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, complete with flash (sans bulb). It was in production between 1949 and 1961.
Thanks for joining me. I hope you enjoyed riding the rails of this particular train of thought.
