History: 1800s Photo of LIRR Engine

Written by Ls Cohen  |  19. December 2020

Three women appear next to a locomotive train engine on tracks, in attire from roughly 1890-1910. They stand next to three men who are also on track level. Another man appears in the cab of the train engine. The men all appear to be railroad employees. The Eichhorn family did have multiple family members who worked with the Long Island Railroad.
