DescriptionA horse-drawn trolley waits at a corner of Railroad Avenue and another street as a man climbs on board. The streets are wide and made of dirt. The trolley has "Plaza, Railroad Avenue, & Depots" painted on the side. Behind the trolley is a block of two-story wooden buildings with porches over a wooden walkway along the street.
