I found this old sepia photograph in a file of mine several days ago. (I've checked, and I'm pretty sure it's new to NLA)


personal file

I've been trying to figure out if the float is a facsimile of Mt. Lowe railroad?


Here's a closer look.


detail

If only we could read what's written at the base of the float.






While trying to find more information on this sepia pic I happened upon another Mt. Lowe float that Flyingwedge posted over three years ago.

I thought it wouldn't hurt to see it again. (it's such a great photograph!) -I wonder what the guy dressed as a bandit is representing?

But what about my sepia photograph? Is that a Mt. Lowe float as well?

And what about the location....is anyone familiar with that brass foundry?
