Wreck at Dismal Pool - 1952

This little article was found by this editor on a Facebook post in October 2021.  The article by itself is not remarkable but it finally confirms what I always thought was a myth, since I could never find factual evidence.  Namely, "That there is at least one box car down in the Dismal Pool near the Crawford Notch Gateway".

I'd like to thank the photographer for settling this story in my mind.  Now I know it is fact...not myth.

Ironically, on the same day I found the article, these pictures from down in Dismal Pool appeared on another Face book post by Hutch Hutchinson of Salem, Ma.  He discovered them on a little family Hike.  October 2021.
