EL Monday: Eastbound Pigs in Akron

July 12, 2021

Between 1967 and 1972 most of my photographs were taken on 2-and-1/4-inch by 2-and-1/4-inch roll film. Each roll had 12 exposures. Rolls of slide film plus processing were exceedingly expensive, so I rarely took slides.

The image above is an exception.. Erie Lackawanna F3A 7094, Alco FB1 7263, F3B 7072, and F3A 7091 are eastbound in Akron in the late 1960s.
