Electric Locomotive from 1888

Another piece from POPULAR ELECTRICITY, this early design was built in Wisconsin and put into operation between Ansonia and Derby, Connecticut. Read the text; it's quite interesting (you can click the image to make it larger).

Original magazine publication: May, 1909. I think it's remarkable that as early as 1909, there were exhibitions showing early equipment; that's over a hundred years ago.
