We enjoyed our Oct. 2007 program Old Blaney to New Elgin – thanks to the Elgin Centennial Committee, our hosts. Where Blaney began — A telegraph operator sits in the Western Union window of the Seaboard train depot at Blaney (today Elgin) in the early 1900s. Thanks so much to Barbie Russ for this image of her great granduncle Elihu Meares, an early 1900s telegraph operator who traveled in the employ of the Seaboard Air Line Railway. The Blaney depot building, moved to Stephen Campbell Road, now serves as Goff Feed & Tack.
The Elgin Centennial was observed in 2008!
