The Expedition...

Tomorrow I leave for Charleston, WV for a special archival/historical expedition. A crack team of archival volunteers will be helping the WV State Archives caption their photographs by noted railroad photographer J.J. Young Jr who died in 2004 and left all of his Wheeling area photos to the state archives. Unfortunately he didn't caption them because he remembered all the captions himself.

The B&O Railroad Historical Society has put out a calendar of his photos with the permission and assistance of his widow so that's why I'm going deep into West By God Virginia.

I'll have my digital camera, laptop and a hotel room with free internet so I may try this whole blogging on the road bit.
