    Tell me please about this photo. I have no answers for it--only questions. 1912-16 Leith,North Dakota.
    Craig Cobb has some recent headlines which a very unfortunate to the population of 16.
    Cobb is known for his movement to dominate the hamlet of Leith, North Dakota with other white supremacists. The hamlet of sixteen inhabitants has one African-American resident, who is married to a white woman. Cobb, who moved to Leith in 2012, attracted other white supremacists to the town and has Neo-Nazi paraphernalia displayed on his property. As a result, local residents and anti-racist organizations have organized a protest in Leith against Cobb and his allies. Cobb has appeared on several radio talk shows and the The Trisha Goddard Show, to talk about his plans for the white supremacy movement in Leith. Welcome to Leith, a documentary film about Cobb's attempt to take over Leith, was released in 2015.

    That is all I could find out about the "town". and none of it relates to the old, puzzling photo.

      Looks like a tool shed, part of a set,of buildings set up every 6 to 10 miles along the track. The section gangs worked from and lived in these building, the work gang was overseen by a section foreman.

      Leith, ND was founded in 1910 as a Milwaukee Road Railroad town.
