South Junk Yard   Leave a comment

The southern third of the site had most of its junk, debris and general trash picked up in late May of 2012 by the Wyoming Conservation Corps, (more information about the WCC can be found here:  http://www.uwyo.edu/reslife-dining/wcc/). In addition to the old fence posts that lined Cedar Street; there were several wooden truck beds, workbenches, pallets, old chairs, and a myriad of other debris scattered around the area. Most of the images on this page were made prior to the clean up; most in the months of March, April and May. The WCC cleaned up the area over a three day period starting on or about 30th May, 2012. The “greenest” images were made the weekend prior to the clean up.

Although this truck may be "newer" than 1920, (1929 or 1930), this is an example of the type of truck that would have been in use for industrial purposes. (Truck courtesy of Dr. David Evertson, D.V.M. - Alpine Animal Hospital)
