Up until fairly recently there were still wooden water pipes in use in some of the older areas of Philadelphia. Crazy!

Rode my motorcycle to Alaska this past summer including the Icefields Parkway. Reading your comments and looking at your photos sure makes me want to take my new to me SMB on a winter trip north. Thanks for posting and taking us along.

thats awesome! My son is a colonial blacksmith and got a bug to learn about barrel making this winter, I'll show him the size of those staves, he will flip
Although I realize that's not a colonial era pipe....

Today was ferry day from Prince Rupert to Ketchikan Alaska. I checked in yesterday and was told I could line up at 0400hrs but when I asked how many cars there were he told me about 6. Well I knew it wouldn't take four hours to load so I got there just before 0700 and was fine. It was still really dark and cold but it went quickly

That's just the conversion to metric! Three US photos equals one CDN photo...
