Hail and Farewell, Bloomer Cut

From: "Chris Graves" caliron@cwnet.com

The City Historian for the City of Auburn has contacted me for a list of suggested names for a new subdivision that will fill both sides of Bloomer Cut, as well as require a bridge over Bloomer Cut, this on the City right of way on Herdal Drive.

I suggested "Strobridge" of course, as well as the locomotive names that were active early on.

Stakes are being placed in the ground as this is written, construction will begin soon.

Should anyone want an unobstructed view, without a bridge over the old Cut, now is the time to get it.
