This photo of 2190 is negative 2221 from a series of negatives numbered 
2212-2223. These were all black and white 120 negatives. Link shot with 
the Rolleflex. He was NOT shooting color in any form at this time, the 
main purpose of this trip on March 16, 1960 was to do recording of the 
last steam in operation, not photography. Link did not shoot color 
negative film, only color transparencies. Link did shoot a number of 
shots with the Rolleiflex, several previously unpublished can be seen 
in the CD booklet at part of the box set, taken on this day.

The album cover for 2nd Pigeon and the Mockingbird was colorized, by 
Dod Pomerhn in 1961, a close examination of the cover will prove this 
is color overlaid in the era long before photoshop.
