I have been sent more great 1915 - 1920 pictures. These came from Steven Faulkner of Oregon. Please check them out. With the exception of the Liberty flag postcards these pictures cam from Steven's grandfather Phillip C. Eberwine and grandmother Edna Moberly-Reynolds-Eberwine. They met and were married in Trona.
Dr. Jim Kennedy of
Dover, NJ sent me some pictures of Trona in 1920 while his father worked
for AP&CC. Please take a look and see if you can help identify anyone in his photos.Photos

stove from an antique store in Pomona CA. The store owner
told me that they believed that the stove had once been in

the stove (pictured above).
I removed the tag
before I had the stove sandblasted and then reattached it

If anyone can
help John with his question please email me. My guess is
that this stove came from a Trona RR caboose.
