Garfield/Congress/CA&E Mystery Photos Contest

Thursday, May 02, 2013 3:40 PM | Ed Graziano (Administrator)

The response to our Mystery Filmstrip Contest has been very gratifying. As I write this, there is still time to get your submission in, since the deadline is not until midnight (Chicago time ) on Tuesday, May 7, 2013.

We’ve been inspired to run a second contest. This one is both easier and harder than the first one. Here are several vintage images of the Garfield and Congress lines, with a few CA&E photos mixed in. Your task is to try and identify as many locations as you can, and narrow down when the pictures were taken. Please refer to the pictures by their number as given in the captions. Again, you have one week to get your entry in to: cerablog1@gmail.com

We will select a winner based on the best overall entry. Your prize will be a copy of CERA Bulletin 126, A Rainbow of Traction. We will then show the photos again, with updated captions.

We hope that you enjoy the photos. The deadline for this second contest is midnight Chicago time on Friday, May 10, 2013. Good luck!
