While doing some historical research for a proposed article in THE ALBUM (now defunct Chalfant Press quarterly published 1987-96), my eyes got bigger than my wallet when I ordered a whole slew of Saline Valley salt tramway photos at Eastern California Museum in Independence. When it came time to pick them up a few weeks later and pay up, I realized I bit off more than I could chew (several hundred dollars worth), and was negotiating with Bill Michael to pick them up after another payday. Mary happened to be standing behind me, stepped up and offered to buy them. I was grateful to be let off the hook (I did keep five of them) when she purchased them. They became part of her book, WHITE SMITH'S FABULOUS SALT TRAM.
