This is an original cabinet card photograph of a railroad train steam locomotive. On the side of the coal car are the letters 'N.P.R.R.' and on the side of the engine is the name 'Narragansett'. The Narragansett Pier Railroad Company began operations in 1876. It operated an eight-mile connecting railroad from the New York, Providence and Boston Railroad stop at Kingston, Rhode Island to the shore at Narragansett Pier. It handled both freight and passengers. The two main objectives of the Narragansett line were to provide freight service for the textile mills at Peace Dale and Wakefield, and passenger service to the resort community of Narragansett Pier. Passenger service ended in 1952 and the line was abandoned in 1981.

The photograph measures approx. 4 1/4" by 6 1/2". The condition is good but it does show wear and some spotting. The back is blank and has a spot w the backing has been pulled off. T is a faint photographers mark on one end within the photo. It looks like W.H. Davidson, Photo. This would make a great addition to a photograph, railroad, or Narragansett Pier collection.
