Marshall, TX


Photograph of train engine #901 and attached cars on railroad tracks, viewed from a front side angle. "901" is visible on the front of the engine. Buildings sit in the distance on the left and right. An electrical pole stands to the left of the tracks. People mill about the gap between the tracks on the right. Handwritten text below the image says, "Marshall Texas Mar. 1934 ('Sunshine Special')."
