  • Description
  • Caption to the right of photograph: Seattle's first railroad. This was the Lake Union end of a small road that extended to the west end of Pike Street. The engine weighed two tons, and the coal cars drawn carried two tons. It was owned and operated by the S.C. & T. Co. from 1871 to 1877. This picture was probably taken on December 25, 1871 when the first engine was put on the track.Prosch Seattle Views Album, Vol. 2, page 12.
