Scenic Railway, Rio de Janiero, 1911

The cover illustration from the April, 1911 issue of POPULAR ELECTRICITY, which I just accidentally stumbled on while searching for something else on eBay. The seller is rhealee8, if you want to see more. I reshaped the photo to make it more, like, rectangular, as it had originally been. Click makes big.
