Shell Creek

Compare this modern photo of Shell Creek with one taken from about the same place in April of 1950. Photo is copyright John Waite's Stemwinder Book, courtesy of the Allen Curtis Collection. Click the new photo to reference the 1950 photo.

Compared to the photo from over 60 years ago, most of the buildings are still there. The Shell Creek Station sat about where the right lane of the highway is now, just beyond the street I'm standing on. The tracks ran about in the middle of the highway, along with a passing track. The old highway that was here when the railroad was running ran right up against those buildings, about where the front of my car is.
