Bluff City Mill Fire

This appears to be the real thing; although, I may be wrong. This Real Photo Post Card (RPPC) depicts a night shot of the fire that devastated Bluff City Mills in July of 1946. The mill was partially rebuilt and finally gave up the ghost somewhere in the early 1990s.

I can’t find any references on the internet to Bluff City Photo Shop, but Frasher’s is well known in and around Pomona CA. The company went out of business circa 1955.

This card was purchased locally by a buddy of mine who has an eagle-sharp eye when it comes to local collectibles.

Bellanca 1730


I found this at Tri-Cities Flea Market, next to the Boone River, in Bluff City or Piney Flats, your choice.  Anyway, it’s a Bellanca 1730 with registration number N6650V.  It’s a valid registration held by the RRS Viking Company LLC in Dothan AL.  I paid $1 for it.  It’s about 1″ wide nose to tail.  Enamel.

Cool, huh?
