The summer of '85 ...

... and October, too.

Last night I found a couple of boxes of slides that I had misplaced. One was labeled "Summer 1985," although I'm sure a few photos are from fall of that year, such as this one. I may post a few of them on my Flickr photostream in the next few days.

This photo was taken at Tu-Endie-Wei park at Point Pleasant WV. This photo might have been from a warm October Sunday of that year. This is the M/V Mr. Jesse Barr of G&C Towing exiting the Kanawha River with several barges loaded with coal. I haven't seen the Mr. Jesse Barr in years, and G&C is another of those companies that was bought up as larger ones expanded through acquisitions.
