Description
Photograph of the Cahuenga Valley Railroad which ran from Temple Street to Hoover Street and on into Hollywood, 1895. A railroad conductor stands in his uniform next to a locamotive trailing its coal car and two passenger cars. The engine sports a straight smokestack and does not seem to have a cow catcher. The word "Cahuenga" can be seen on its side. Sparse trees are visible in the background. The engineer, with traditional checkered kerchief and hat, leans out of the engine's window.
