PORT HURON '19' LONGFELLOW NO. 8220. BUILT IN 1919 AND OWNED BY MR. WILLIAM H. SCHWARZENDRUBER OF 9 21 FIRST NATIONAL BANK BUILDING, PEORIA, ILLINOIS

This is a beautiful picture. I'll just bet that many of you will just sit and look for hours at that picture, letting dreams collect and visions project. We cannot help but think that if Mr. Scrwarzendruber had built an engine what a long heater it would have had to hold the name. What a lot of ink it would have taken to print the history in the ALBUM

Many oldsters stop, smile and recall fond days of the past, while the youngsters view the engine with the idea that it is a monster belonging to another world.

Does anyone know where another engine has been put to such use. 'Picture courtesy of J. C. Cobb, Ronceverte, West Virginia.
