Great Original 1870's-1880's Locomotive Photograph
- Source: eBay
Nice original sepia photograph of the locomotive, Erastus Corning, with a crew of four men. Matte is 9 5/8" x 8". Image measures about 8 1/4" x 6". The man, Erastus Corning, was instrumental in the operation and founding of several New York state railroads in the 1830's through the 1860's. He died in 1872. There are some intiials on the coal car, but I can't make them out. Great detail on this handsome engine, which sports an Indian shooting an arrow finial on one of its boiler caps. A good clean image mounted on its original matte.
