Yesteryears’ Swimming Holes


Morning, everyone. I was off yesterday, so I went to where I lived when I was a kid. Had lunch at the local diner and shot some pictures of where we use to swim.

There were a total of 5 places. 3 out of the 5 you could only get to by walking, the other 2 had access by car. The 2 by car I shot.

Picture 2 is my favorite. It was a train trestle. When we were young the train would stop at the depot in the town and take passengers to the city. When it discontinued due to cars and trolleys, the railroad began hauling coal.

This was in the 50’s when we were born.

When it hauled coal, it would stop. We use to climb up on the box cars and jump off.

The good ole days!
