Time Stood Still - almost




You have already seen the pictures of Barnes' farm across the street from our house in Smyrna. All these pictures were within walking distance of our house – probably less than a mile.

Smyrna is still in Cobb County, just a few miles down the road.

What you see are pictures of 35 years ago. But the same scenes are pretty much the same today. The Concord Covered Bridge is still there…. But instead of the RR rails and crossties are no longer there. it is now the Silver Comet Trail, a thirty-plus mile exercise paved track that people walk, run, ride bikes, and even to keep up with modern times it has had a murder and a few muggings.

Hope it is not covered in snow!

Too bad the rail system has been sacrificed to the highway systems. Ike's biggest error, to me at least. But a trail is good, too.

Si,
They needed more engines "who-think-they-could."
