I became aware of this through a Facebook friend who attended Winterail 2018.


A wonderful tribute by Blair Kooistra: 

"Presented at Winterail 2018, this is my 27 minute black-and-white tribute to the west end of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad and its employees, which I'd photographed in its last years of operation, 1977-1980."
