Reminders of M&N Update

When I recently found the article at left, headlined “Railroad Rumpus,” from the Daily Northwestern (Oshkosh, Wis.), 24 May 1883, I knew that I had to add it to the web site. The article describes a heated moment in the rivalry between the Milwaukee & Northern (M&N) and the Milwaukee, Lake Shore & Western (MLS&W) at the Atlas Paper Co. mill in ‘The Flats’ at Appleton, Wis. Some recent photographs of the facility are included.
