Subject: Re: [DRGW] Photo location?

I just downloaded* the 1966 USGS 1:24000 topo sheets for Alamosa East and A=
lamosa West. They show South yard to the *west* of the main, running from 1=
0th Street south to well below where Rt 285 joins Railroad Ave.

*Go to USGS Historical Topographic Maps here:=20
https://ngmdb.usgs.gov/maps/TopoView/
Click on Get Maps in the top menu bar
Zoom in and find the area you want and then set Map Scales to 24,000
Click on the map sheet you want
Check the dates on the list of available maps
Seclect the one you want and then click on JPEG format to download.

It=E2=80=99s fast, easy and free.
Enjoy,

Jim Eager
