First Oregon Electric Car

Title

First Oregon Electric Car

Description

Sepia-toned image of a group of people gathered in a street looking at an electric trolley car. A large banner across the road reads 'Hillsboro Washington County,' and power poles with several cross-ties line the road as well. The streetcar sits across the plank road, while a horse and wagon wait behind the crowd. The women wear full shirts tucked into long skirts and wide-brimmed hats. What looks like a firehouse is thrown on the street, and one of the visible buildings behind the electric rail car is a church.
