Description
Scene of a train derailment. A railroad car is off the track and a dozen men standing on or by the track, and a crane behind the railroad car seems to be in the process of lifting it or pulling it. A young man holding a pick-mat-lock is clearly visible on the right and is looking solemnly at the camera. His hat is shiny as if it had been raining. (See info written on photo #1991-41-128.) Inscribed on the backside: "Feather River Canyon."
