Old Photo Postcard Rppc,locomotive,train Sea Railroad Jetty,barview,oregon,scary For Sale

This is an especially interesting antique Real Photo Postcard. What a scary passage! And the intrepid photographer M. H. Abrams, had to jump off the train to take this photo! The postcard is titled "Jetty at Bar View - 1 mile out". Notice the force of the wind blowing the steam and the rough seas pounding the railroad jetty! A steam locomotive is in the foreground. The train has built up a head of steam but is obviously stopped to allow Abrams to take the photo. Two train Engineers lean out of the cab. The one on the right is smiling. The train is possibly carrying large canvas bags of cargo or oilcloth draped equipment at the end and possibly cut wood in the foreground. There is a man behind the engine and possibly another further back. Notice there are two sets of tracks. Another train is visible in the distance. We beleive the train was part of the service carry passengers to the town of Barview which is now a Ghost Town. The town of Barview or Bar View was just south of Rockaway Beach, Oregon. Like Bayocean, Barview was destroyed by the fierce storm and the ocean in 1915. A train still operates in the area providing tours. This railroad jetty may have been damaged or destroyed by the storm of 1915. We welcome info from you experts. The photo is a rich and dark brown color and has very good contrast. It was not mailed and is in very good condition except for the paper and glue residue on the back. The corner tips are barely bumped and it is 5 3/8 by 3 3/8 inches. The bottom edge near the right corner has a super short nick next to the lower right corner. If you turn it to catch glare, you see quite a bit of silvery sheen from the old photo printing process. This caused glare in our photos below. Also with glare, you notice a handful of very small areas where th photo surface is duller than the rest. This is in the ocean and the other very small dull area just below "Abrams" and another small slightly dull area that is just above the "1" of "1 mile out". These are hardly worth mentioning, but we prefer not to omit. There is a sliver of rust colored foreign material at the upper edge near the right corner, just aboe the buldings on the shore. We have not tryed to scrape this off. The postcard is 5 3.8 by 3 3/8 inches and we estimate this to be from abuot 1908 to 1912 or so. What a great photo by an intrepid photographer and of daring railroad men operating the train over the Barview jetty!
