EASTERN IDAHO RAILROAD, INC. "D.A.R.E. / To Resist Drugs And Violence" unused Ken Church photo of Eastern Idaho Railroad diesel publicizing this elementary school program, fresh appearance. $2.00 sr
EAST SAINT LOUIS, COLUMBIA & WATERLOO RAILWAY. "FIRST CAR DEC. 20, 1912" with a crowd of people posed nearby the Waterloo-bound interurban car, well composed with good contrast, oxidation consistent with age, light toning on back, good edges. Connected its namesake Illinois cities from 1912 to 1932. Seldom seen & seldom offered! SALE IN PROGRESS r(e)i(e)
EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS. "The Khedive's Special. / Egyptian Government Railways" showing the engine & carriage built by R. Stephenson and Sons in 1862 so that the Khedive of Egypt could move his court between the summer palace of Montaza and Alexandria. The railroad itself, begun in 1852 was the first railway on the African continent. Tuck postcard 9274, unused, with trivial toning on the back, & a bit of wear at the upper left front corner. Marvelous! $40.00 ert
ELDORADO SPRINGS RAILWAY COMPANY. "Automobile Railway, Eldorado Springs, Colo., C. & So. R. R." miscaptioned because each of the 3 cars on this segmented miniature railway train is distinctly labeled 'ELDORADO SPRINGS / RAILWAY CO.' or 'The Automobile Road / ELDORADO SPRINGS RAILWAY'. The Colorado & Southern referred to in the caption ran from 1898 to 1908; the Eldorado Springs Railway was incorporated in 1909 with the intention of servicing an amusement park with electrified passenger service. Thus, this rare postcard documents precisely the 1908 / 1909 transition. It is unused, faint album marks at the front corners; discoloration at the bottom 2 corners attributable to the original chromo-lithographic process itself. We have seen reproductions of this postcard offered at over $300.00; but why not own the real thing, available from us, for only $60.00? r(e)c(e)u

Exceptionally interesting with even more threatening legalese on matters of no insurance, lack of liability, etc. $7.50 r(e)
ERIE RAILROAD COMPANY. "ERIE RAILROAD / E-8 UNITS #834 & #835 / October 17, 1992..." showing a Conrail train crossing the Delaware River on the former Erie Mainline, unused chrome post card from a photo by Don Jilson, fresh appearance. $1.25 r

ERIE RAIL ROAD COMPANY. "Looking East / on Erie R. R. // Martel, O." including 3 railroad employees (2 on a handcar, probably a tract inspection crew) at a siding & the Martel Ohio depot in the distance, unused sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard with good focus & good edges, oxidation consistent with circa-1910 age, light album toning on back. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. o(m)r(e)
ERIE RAILROAD COMPANY. "No. 57. BABY ENGINE used around the Erie Shops, Susquehanna, Pa. One of the smallest engines in practical use." showing locomotive #20 (57 is the postcard number) under steam; unused postcard published by C. D. Burton in Lanesboro Pennsylvania, long bottom corner crease is not too noticeable from the front, trivial corner wear. In the excellent collection of the Tioga Point Museum, but no one else shows it on offer or on display. Rare. $20.00 p(s)r(e)
ERIE RAILROAD COMPANY. "THE LARGEST STEAM LOCOMOTIVE IN THE WORLD / CONSTRUCTED BY THE AMERICAN LOCOMOTIVE WORKS AT SCHENECTADY, N. Y. / PUB. BY THE ALBANY NEWS COMPANY" showing Erie engine & tender #2600, postcard mailed DEC 16 1909 at Schenectady to Mr. O. J. Moon (known from other sources to be with the Pennsylvania Railroad) in Wilmington Ohio. Entire message is interesting & pertinent: 'Just a sample of our work here. They were built for the Erie to haul heavy freights or rather push them over the Susquehanna division. Also sent some to the Santa Fe Road to get over the Rockies. Notice the front drivers are worked on a swivel in order to take the curves.' Message on front also in sender's hand. $20.00 r(e)n(s)s
ERIE RAIL ROAD COMPANY. Uncaptioned sepia-tone real photo showing an Erie Railroad steam locomotive pulling into the South Dayton New York depot (station sign & crating labels & cancel confirm), mailed JUN 25 to Miss Nellie Cartwright in Ottawa, Ohio where it arrived one day later, Jamestown commemorative stamp, very light album toning near the back edges. Recognize it? This station appeared much later in two Hollywood movies: 'The Natural' with Robert Redford & 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' with Steve Martin & John Candy. Probably one-of-a-kind: no printed caption, no photographer credit, no publisher attribution. $25.00 n(s)rm
EVANSVILLE, HENDERSON & OWENSBORO RAILWAY CO. "Transfer Ferry, Henderson Line, Evansville, Ind. / P25311" showing the ferry of the Evansville Henderson & Owensboro Railway Company (which operated along 0.9 miles of track leased from the CStL&NO, 1912 - 1928) carrying an electrified interurban across the Ohio River, unused postcard, trivial wear at 3 corners. Rare, the only time we have ever seen the rolling stock of that extremely short railroad on a postcard of any sort. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 r(e)i(e)k(h)s(r)
FERROCARRIL Interoceánico de México / Interoceanic RAILWAY. "2953. Getting Pulque, Scene on the Interoceanic Railway, Mexico. / Es Propiedad Sonora New Company, City of Mexico." unused tarjeta postal, printed text on the back about the importance of cacti, faint small bottom corner crease, very light toning on back. The railroad referenced was the Ferrocarril Interoceánico de México. $5.00 m(g)r(f)pd*
FERROCARRIL MEXICANO / FCM / MEXICAN RAILWAY. "F. C. MEXICANO / PUENTE DE METLAC" unused sepia-tone real photo from F. I. Fernando showing a long train on the main line passing over the Ravine of Metlac (now a national park in the Veracruz State), passenger hanging out of the open windows for a better view. Most dealers who handle this postcard miss the F. in the caption (printed almost white-on-white on a bridge support) which is an integral part of the name of the railroad. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 m(v)r(f)b
FERROCARRIL MEXICANO / FCM / MEXICAN RAILWAY. "F. C. MEXICANO / VENDIENDO FLORES EN / 10 EL FORTIN" showing flower vendors soliciting business from Ferrocarril Mexicano passengers at the Fortin depot; sepia-tone real photo tarjeta postal, well composed with good depth-of-field, unused, paper starting to brown evenly with age. Why would people on a train without air conditioning buy flowers? Depends on who is sitting next to them! In July 1955, the name of the pueblo of Fortin was changed as part of a decree to become the villa Fortin de las Flores. $16.00 m(v)pr(f)f
FERRYMEAD RAILWAY. Unused continental post card showing its steam locomotive built in 1931 (tender version) in action in more modern times, from a photograph by Roy Sinclair, fairly fresh. In New Zealand. $2.00 nr
FLORIDA EAST COAST RAILWAY COMPANY. "F.E.C. CABOOSE NUMBER 715 / ...put / on display in 1967 at The Florida Pioneer Museum / located at Florida City, Florida." unused chrome post card from a photo by Robert A. Selle, good edges. $1.25 rf
FLORIDA EAST COAST RAILWAY COMPANY. "F. E. C. Ry. Dock, Key West, Fla." including a long line of Pullman cars for the Florida East Coast Railway, unused divided back post card published by Key West Stationery Company (their number 23188), tiny bottom corner crease. Hard to find! Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 f(k)r(f)
FORT SCOTT CENTRAL RAILWAY. "Hells Bend, Ft. SCOTT, Kans." north of Fort Scott, looking south near the Marmaton River, where the tracks take a big bend; postcard printed in Germany, mailed JUN 29 1909 (light K. C. & MEMPHIS R.P.O. RMS hand cancel) to Arthur & Arnold Nash in St. Louis Missouri from their father, writing on front (old habits die hard), trivial corner & edge wear. Rare. Why? The Fort Scott Central Railway (so named because it went through the center of Fort Scott) became part of the Missouri Pacific Railway a little later in 1909; we doubt that the larger system saw the importance publicizing this view. $9.00 k(f)r(f)g(n)
FORT WAYNE & WABASH VALLEY TRACTION COMPANY. Uncaptioned sepia-tone Artura real photo post card showing the 9/21/10 wreck near Kingsland Indiana of 2 different types of interurban electric railroad cars of the Fort Wayne & Wabash Valley Traction Company. 41 souls perished in that disaster. This is not the captioned view that you might have seen produced by an enterprising photographer who sold them commercially. Instead, this is a spectator's personal photograph taken from a slightly different angle, and obviously one-of-a-kind. $20.00 i(k)r(f)d
FRISCO RAILROAD. See SAINT LOUIS & SAN FRANCISCO RAILWAY.
FURNESS RAILWAY. "FURNESS RAILWAY, 1920 / E. Sharple's 4-6-4 tank engine for heavy intermediate duty." postcard printed in Great Britain, unused, fresh appearance. Shown with its crest. Colourmaster series. $1.50 r

GAINESVILLE MIDLAND. Black & white 5"x8" photograph of its steam locomotive 32 with tender & crew, good composition & focus, a bit low in contrast. In Georgia. $5.00 rg
GARDEN CITY, GULF & NORTHERN RAILROAD. "Construction work on the G. C. G. & N. R. R. A. J. Canaday, Contractor" unused sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard, long corner crease & 2 long internal creases from the top edge. This single-track short line (37+ miles) rail road was entirely in Kansas, connecting Scott City to Garden City. Construction began in 1907 & was completed in early 1910. Thus we can date the divided-back postcard within late-1907 to early-1910. That is a Reeves tractor & a five-man crew doing the work. The short Wikipedia article on this rail road expresses uncertainty as to the claim of construction by the Kansas Construction & Irrigation Company. Here is photographic proof about one who actually did the work, or at least part of the work, possibly as a subcontractor to them! Belongs in a museum! $100.00 r(g)k(g)g
GENERALLY. "WAIT! / YOU MAY / LOSE / CROSS CROSSINGS CAUTIOUSLY / ARA © 1924 The sales Printing Corporation of New York" postcard mailed that year to Mrs. Myrtle Lollars in Washington Court House Ohio, several creases (some long), spot of toning at an upper corner shows both sides, as is. $1.00 r(g)a

GLASGOW & SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY.

GLYN VALLEY TRAMWAY (Wales). "The Station, Glyn Ceiriog / Perfection Series 1255" showing the Sir Theodore (one of the 2 original locomotives) picking up & discharging passengers on the narrow-gauge Glyn Valley Tramway; mailed at Glyn 1907, long corner crease.

GRAND RAPIDS & INDIANA RAILROAD / G. R. & I. RAILROAD. "Railway Station, Bay View, Mich." post card from V. O. Hammon, small corner crease, couple small spots of toning on back, printing is fuzzy (as one color was laid down off-register) except for the caption, necessitating a second & much more common printing. This depot served the Grand Rapids & Indiana Railroad. We have seen this view before, but on a differently captioned postcard. Definitely not common. $7.50 m(b)r(g)
GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC RAILWAY. Uncaptioned real photo postcard picturing the engine, tender, construction workers, & 2 small portable boilers (that would be useful for pile-driving into loose soil, e.g.) of D. F. McArthur Railways on or about October 19, 1911 (when the sender docketed his message & where the tracks probably ended as shown). Sent with a 1-c Canadian stamp (there was no post office there, so they smudge cancelled the stamp with oily fingerprints) to Elmer Frye in Lyons Indiana by his friend Uria. This company railroad operated as subcontractor to the brother's J. D. McArthur Company for clearing, leveling the ground & building roadbeds for the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway through Alberta. Sender anticipated the job would be finished by April 1912, but as we understand it the main lines for the GTPR (& Canadian Northern Railways for that matter) were built in Yellowhead Pass into 1913, so he may have been a bit too optimistic. The flat terrain seen here is necessarily in Alberta, not British Columbia which lay distant & ahead at that time. $125.00 ar(g)r(m)
GRAND TRUNK RAILWAY. "Grand Trunk Depot Battle Creek, Mich." including people outside the facility, postcard from S. H. Knox, writing on front dates to 1910, unmailed, wear at 2 bottom corners.

GRAND TRUNK RAILWAY. "G. T. R. Station, Paris" monochromatic blue within a simulated wood border, postcard mailed OCT 21 07 from Paris Station to Fort Erie Ontario (clear cancel ties stamp, clear receiving auxiliary mark the same day), minor corner & edge wear, light album toning on back. When the Grand Trunk Railroad served this town it had about 3,500 souls. An uncommon card. $16.00 o(p)r(g)-o
GRAND TRUNK RAILWAY and/or GRAND TRUNK WESTERN RAILROAD. "First Locomotive In New Grand Trunk Shops / For Repairs, Battle Creek, Mich." suspended by crane, postcard with subtle colors published by Valentine & Son, mailed JUN 20 1914, minor corner wear. Wikipedia uses this postcard to illustrate its article on the Grand Trunk Western Railroad; but what it says on the locomotive is 'Grand Trunk' not 'Grand Trunk Western', so if it was for both, then the imprecise caption is understandable. In any case, seldom offered. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. m(b)r(g)i
GRAND TRUNK RAILWAY and/or GRAND TRUNK WESTERN RAILROAD. "Heavy Machines in Grand Trunk Locomotive Shops, Battle Creek, Mich." postcard mailed at Battle Creek SEP 18 1910, small creases at 2 corners, a lot of wear along the top edge. More precisely, these shops were built in 1908 along Verona Road in Emmett Township, adjacent to but not in Battle Creek. In the Willard Library Digital Collections, but shown nowhere else when we searched the Internet. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. m(e)m(b)r(g)i

McCullough Jr. (registered 1907 to Interlake Steamship) at Superior Wisconsin of course, unused white-border era postcard, minor ding near corner, fairly fresh. Sold but still available for scholarly study & research as a full-size & enhanced 72-dpi scan in .jpg format. The docks shown were built for the Great Northern Railroad. $1.50 s(i)s(l)wr(g)#
GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY / GREAT NORTHERN RAILROAD. "Great Northern mountain type locomotive is 58 inches / long, took 1,600 carving hours... " with a side view of the Ernest Warther ebony, ivory & pearl carving displayed at the Warther Museum in Dover Ohio; unused chrome post card, 2 tiny spots of toning on back, otherwise fairly fresh. $2.50 o(d)kmr
GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY / GREAT NORTHERN RAILROAD. "Observation Platform, The New Oriental Limited, / A De Luxe Train, No Extra Fare." with the seal of the Great Northern Railroad on back -- helpful, because it also went over the tracks of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad. The Oriental Limited started in 1905 for the Great Northern, but this is a divided back postcard. So "new" in the caption likely refers to the 1909 extension of the route to Chicago! The write-up in Wikimedia Commons clearly shows this on a circa-1909 postcard without white border, but mistakenly fixes the age at 1924. True, this is a white-border era postcard consistent with 1924, but in fact the printer's code on the back is 29808N, where the N denotes a reprint. To summarize: this is a 1909 viewcard that was reprinted in 1924, quite possibly for the reason specified at Wikimedia Commons--the all-new trainset. Whew! That was hard! $12.00 r(g)r(o)*
GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY / GREAT NORTHERN RAILROAD. "Snow Shed near Horse Shoe Tunnel, / on line of Great Northern Ry." in Washington State, postcard published by Trattner in Seattle, mailedDEC 30 1910, minor rounding to one upper corner, very light toning on back.

GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY / GREAT NORTHERN RAILROAD. "This picture was taken at Berthold. Hello David - This is the engine that goes through hear(sic) about every other day. It has seven drive wheeles(sic) on each side and the other ones only have six on each side." uncaptioned Cyko real photo postcard so we used most of the message; good contrast & focus, slight oxidation suggests circa-1915 age, addressed but unmailed (probably sent under cover), tiny upper corner crease tangential to image, other corner wear is minor. At one time this Great Northern Railway engine #2000 was the largest steam locomotive in the world. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. n(b)r(g)

GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY (United Kingdom). "Fishguard Harbour." with a two-masted ship discharging passengers for the Great Western Railway train to London, several cranes & construction activity in the foreground (therefore circa 1909 or before); unused real photo postcard with toning both sides due to album contact, trivial edge wear. We believe that what appears to be a hairline scratch in the lower right front corner is actually an artifact of the photographic development process, because we cannot feel a surface disturbance. $25.00 wr

HANNIBAL & ST. JOSEPH RAILROAD. "SEVENTY YEARS OF PROGRESS / IN THE RAILWAY POST OFFICE" picturing the circa 1862 Hannibal & St. Joseph Rail Road US Mail car No. 1 7 & the interior of a then-modern Burlington Route car, black & white multiview postcard furnished for mailing in the Postal Car on the Burlington World's Fair Exhibition Train, unused, back toned extensively, front toning along the bottom edge is light. $4.00 err-r
HARBOR SPRINGS RAILROAD. "Copyright 1906 by the Rotograph Co. / A 7534 Observation Train, Harbor Springs, Mich." unused postcard with undivided back, small spot of light toning on back, otherwise fairly fresh with good edges. This shows the narrow-gauge Harbor Springs Railway, sometimes called 'Hemlock Central'. Looks like a touristy kind of card, right? Well it did haul vacationers in the summer, as seen here, but it was actually a logging railroad throughout the year. Surprisingly hard to find! Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. m(h)lr(h)
HARTWELL RAILROAD. Sepia-tone 5"x8" glossy photo of its steam locomotive #2 Richmond 47039 2-6-0 at Hartwell Georgia. good focus & contrast. $5.00 rg
HAWAII CONSOLIDATED RAILWAY. Two unused SSSS real photo postcards showing front & side views of a gasoline-powered White Motor Company railbus (number 3 of 3) received by the Hawaii Consolidated Railway (its logo conspicuously on the side) for passenger traffic (tourist & local commuter) near its company shops in Waiakea. The gentleman on the left is Richard W. Filler, HCR Manager. On the right is Ezra Amos May, HCR brake expert who later became yardmaster. By the newness of the vehicle, and by the real photo type, we can date the view to circa 1924-1925. Under magnification we can see that the motorman / ticket-taker's entry from the left side was more narrow than the entry for passengers on the right. Obviously each postcard is one-of-a-kind: no captioning, no photographer attribution & no publisher attribution. One of the 8 corners has trivial wear; back paper starting to brown evenly with age. We have not seen their likes elsewhere. Railbus real photos are rare for any railroad, anytime (these are early) & anywhere. They were meant to provide economical passenger service at times & places where passenger traffic was declining. These belong together in a museum. $400.00 gets them both. h(h)r(h)gg
HAWAIIAN RAILROADS (GENERALLY). See also the excellent Hawaiian Railroad Society website.
HENRY SHOEMAKER CONTRACTORS. Uncaptioned & reduced real photo postcard showing an engine with flatcars before & after it (probably for carrying coal). Lengthy lettering in three lines on the engine is not in the best focus with 3 lines crossing it for extra difficulty but we read all except 2 or 3 characters (indicated by ...) under very high magnification as 'HENRY SHOEMAKER ... / CONTRACTORS / PHILADELPHIA PA.' Henry Francis Shoemaker (1845 - 1918) was a banker, president of the Mineral Range Railroad, chairman of the executive committee of the Cincinnati Hamilton & Dayton, and majority shareholder of the Cleveland Lorain & Wheeling Railroad. Addressing the 2 or 3 letters we cannot read for sure, we find mention of a 'Henry Shoemaker's Co.' in Northampton Pennsylvania mentioned by the Wyoming Historical and Geological Society; Northampton is about 53 miles away from Philadelphia as the crow flies. Rare & important: we could not find the likes of this image when we searched the Internet. $82.50 p(p)g(s)r(h)
HIGH FALLS RAILWAY LINE / HIGH FALLS LINE. "High Falls Line 4/16/10" unused captioned sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard showing a well-dressed gentleman riding the rails on a bicycle stabilized by connections to 2 steel-flanged wheels on the opposite side--a variant of the Coey bicycle attachment (invented & marketed circa 1908) for which we have another offering. Compare the 1917 photograph of the Winton touring car & its passenger trailer, also on steel-flanged wheels, believed to be on this line, shown at www.trainweb.org. This mining line connected the hydroelectric plant at High Falls on the Spanish River to Turbine Ontario (from which Canadian Pacific Railway connections could be made to Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, etc.) Such vehicles could be operated safely by company employees & executives because no passenger trains would be encountered. Rare! Will be sent by first-class not-machineable mail, protected by a reusable acrylic holder to US addresses only. $135.00 r(h)o(h)ub

HOCKING-SUNDAY CREEK TRACTION COMPANY. Uncaptioned real photo postcard of its clean & glistening interurban car with dignitaries posed around it, the letters H S and C intertwined in a monogram plain over their shoulders; mailed 3/8/10 from Nelsonville (abbreviated Nels. by sender) with Columbus & Athens RPO handstamp clearly applied, to Greenfield Ohio. Excellent composition, depth-of-field & contrast. Sender writes in part: 'Some class to our new street car'. The line was planned to run from Nelsonville to Athens by way of Doanville, Floodwood & Chaunsey; it was chartered in 1909. Volume 34 of Engineering & Contracting, page 29, reported on November 23rd of 1910 the part of that line was already "completed & in operation for a distance of 3.3 miles from Nelsonville", bonds to be issued for the rest. Sunday Creek was an underground & surface coal-mining area that left a sad environmental legacy. Traffic was mostly coal miners & their families according to George W. Hilton's 'The Individual Interurbans', page 272. The postmark we report here was used on a segment of the Hocking Valley Railway. Probably unique, this postcard has no caption, and no attribution to a photographer or publisher. It is possible that the sender himself amateurishly added some light green & blue color in the background trees to suggest leaves & sky. The best Athens County postcard we have ever seen in anyone's stock. $82.50 n(o)r(h)m
HUDSON & MANHATTAN RAILROAD COMPANY. "CHURCH STREET TERMINAL / SECTIONAL VIEW FROM STREET LEVEL TO STATE / PLATFORMS. HUDSON & MANHATTAN R.R.

Several people & the mangled remains of a tracked vehicle are prominent. Rare! SALE IN PROGRESS k(a)r(i)

"EXPRESS SERVICE AT FREIGHT RATES / NO DIRT NO DUST / NO SMOKE NO CINDERS / SHIP BY ELECTRICITY AND SAVE TIME. / 100 CARS OF GRAIN HANDLED FROM THIS ELEVATOR IN THE LAST 90 DAYS" showing the Union Illinois elevator, unused advertising post card, fairly fresh with good edges, just a small spot of light toning on back. $18.00 r(i)i(u)a*
ILLINOIS TRACTION SYSTEM / I. T. S. "FREIGHT TRAIN ON 'ROAD OF GOOD SERVICE'" postcard published by the McKinley Lines of the I. T. S., unused, 2 corner creases, light toning both sides. The engine number is 1565. The McKinley part of the system ran as many as 165 trains daily, and was named after a relative of President McKinley. $10.00 r(i)i(i)a
ILLINOIS TRACTION SYSTEM / I. T. S. "HARRY / BYCROFT / Livery & Sale Stable" with our caption taken from the only legible sign, showing a crowd gathered around a lengthy electric interurban train that had stopped there; unused sepia-tone AZO real photo (triangles point up) postcard. Pencil writing on back puts location at Concord Michigan. We disagree: the Macoupin County coroner reported in 1910 (about the time of this postcard) that a George Dorsey fell to his death at Harry Bycroft's barn in Gillespie Illinois; and Bycrofts live to this day in Gillespie. Also, the Illinois Traction System ran electric interurban service through Gillespie. Probably one of a kind, because there is no caption & no attribution to a photographer or publisher. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 i(g)g(b)g(d)r(i)

INDIANAPOLIS & CONNERSVILLE TRACTION LINE. "Streetcar that the motorman lost control of came down 10th st. at 90 miles an hour, whirled around twice before it hit the cannal(sic) right in front of our house" real photo postcard showing the Rushville - Glenwood - Connersville local car of the line on its side in the water; mailed by Anna Brown DEC 3 1907 in Connnersville. Eyewitness accounts such as this are rare. Obviously one-of-a-kind: no photographer attribution (she just stepped out of her house), no printed caption (so we used the message instead) & no publisher attribution. A different postcard of this accident - the only other we have seen - had no account of how the accident happened. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged (about 771% of original print area) & enhanced 200-dpi scan in .jpg format. $2.00 i(c)r(i)d

Photo the size of a regular post card showing its Limited passing through Logansport Indiana (as determined by a local historian reading the signage). Good focus, contrast & composition.

Downing Esq. at the Lackawanna Railroad in St. Paul. Mailed 13 1886, trivial edge wear. Very early: the railroad associations debated what metrics to exchange as late as 1891. Railroads operating in comparable geography & climate, as these two did, could and did strike up gentlemen's agreements on their own. The only comparable we could find when searching the Internet was that for the Philadelphia & Reading Railroad in 1888. Belongs in a museum. $10.00 r(c)r(l)w(m)m
LAKE ERIE & WESTERN RAIL ROAD. 1908 real photo postcard mailed from Atlanta Indiana, showing 2 telegraphers. Men's names are not given, photographer is not credited, affiliation is not specified.

The railroad is the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railway. Surprisingly hard to find & seldom offered.

When we visited the internet, no one was offering it & no collector or museum was exhibiting it. SALE IN PROGRESS o(l)r(l)u
LAKE SHORE & MICHIGAN SOUTHERN. "Chicago & New York Limited" circa-1908 sepia-tone souvenir post card from the 'Bachelor' in Cleveland Ohio, very light toning both sides, hint of wear at the left front edge.

LAKE SHORE RAILROAD. Uncaptioned circa-1910-1918 sepia-tone Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard showing 6 Lake Shore Rail Road trainmen standing before a baggage cart loaded with Uhl Brothers numbered crates ready to ship, exemplary focus & contrast. The Uhl Brothers, important makers of sturdy metal furniture, were located exclusively in Toledo. They moved in 1910 to co-locate with this depot on Dorr Street, so they had no need to ship from any other depot. And they then had no need for wagons to take their products for offloading at railroad sidings; all they needed was a baggage cart, and even small (less-than-wagon-load) orders could go out quickly. Yes, their name had changed to Toledo Metal Furniture Company in 1904. But if you had crates so obviously sturdy & custom-made, and everyone knew who you were, would you have thrown them out? Notice these small crates are not suitable for steel tables, soda fountain chairs, typewriter chairs, or cabinets--some of their larger mainline specialties. Those small crates could have lasted them quite some time. Our surmise is that the picture was taken for an advantageous business reason in 1910: to show visually to any prospective customer that they could now get even small orders to the depot quickly. That is what the image is saying: the railroad represented by these men & the Uhl Brothers business represented by these crates are now just a baggage cart away from each other! The biography of Philip E. Uhl is located at www.onlinebiographies.info if you want to learn more about the business he founded. $37.50 o(t)r(l)a
LAKESIDE & MARBLE HEAD RAIL ROAD.

Some quarry workers, scaffolding & a lift are beneath. Engine & caboose are marked 'NEW YORK CENTRAL LINE' but the more specific marking on the caboose is 'L. S. & M. H.' Trivial edge wear, lightly toned back, 2 pencil lines on back may erase well. Probably one-of-a kind: no caption, no photographer credit, no publisher credit.

Their route was also short, passing only through Hazelrigg. Postcard mailed 1910, one upper corner creased faintly 3 times in the sky, the other upper corner with a small crease, a bit of rounding to the bottom corners. It is possible that Dorothy Wood, daughter of the founder, is the lady standing prominently at its side. Definitely rare.
