Before everyone reads this post, I wish you would go back to the beginning of this thread & read from the beginning.

I have posted pictures of letters, photographs, and artifacts from the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. These photographs go along with the story & discussions we have had. I have had these pictures for years, just never posted them. Now that I'm retired, I've got more time to research & post some of the items we have in our collection.

Here are the photographs:
This picture was taken at the Tullahoma Train Depot in 1904. I know Jack Daniel is not in this picture, but it does show the train & the horse & buggies. Jack rode his horse & buggy from Lynchburg & boarded the train in Tullahoma, heading to St. Louis. This may not be, but could possibly be the train Mr. Jack got on.

We know Jack boarded the Nashville, Chattanooga, & St. Louis Railroad train.
Here is a stock certificate from 1881 for this train line.

That's all. Hope you enjoyed.
