Transportation ➔ Photograph, Railway, Probably Interurban West Michigan Train

Identifier:
2018.5.37
Description:
A black and white photograph of an electric railway train, presumably along an interurban line, stopped on the tracks. In the distance, the railway cars seem as though they may be jumbled, as though there may have been a derailment. The closest car to the photographer has the number “198” painted on it. A man standing next to that car seems to be looking toward the derailed cars.

This photograph was likely taken in or near Grand Rapids, Michigan because they were donated as part of a batch of photographs chiefly related to the Grand Rapids area.
