    From Richard Crabtree on Frisco Rails Across Missouri:
    Here we are at the Frisco Depot in Ozark, Missouri and the famed Chadwick Flyer. At the depot we see bunch of beautiful Gibson Girls waiting to board the train north bound to Springfield, Missouri. It would appear that the train is running late and someone is yelling for them to get on the train !

    For those wondering what a Gibson Girl was

    This photo has been published several times, and there has been speculation with regard to the young ladies. One opined that this was a wedding party, another thought that they were members of a school class, and another thought that they were headed to Springfield for a day in the big city.

    The depot livery and “McCraken Grain Co" point to a post 1910 date.
