This image taken in Hillsborough, New Hampshire, is Part I of a series of three where the photographer captured an important scene at the train station. We do not know the date or the occasion, but it appears that either a VIP or a politician has stopped at the station and the townspeople can be seen waving their hats and hands in response. Note the smoke appearing to come from a steam locomotive on the left that can be seen above the station building indicating a brief stop, and the short length of the train.
This image is part of an ongoing effort to help the Hillsborough Historical Society to identify the cars and trucks in the photographs in their archives. Please take the time to look at the two enlargements above and help us to identify and date the cars for them. Three Model “T” Fords can be seen in the photo, but the rest may take a bit more work to determine their maker. Let us know what you may find. Other interesting earlier photos from the Society can be found here.
