About this Item

Title
Observation train following parade
Summary
"There were two freight trains standing on the tracks between the river and the Riverside Park, and they furnished a perfect impromptu observation train service to the men and boys who clambered up on the cars to get a view of the [Sampson homecoming naval] parade. They saw the vessels go up and then waited for their return. As the ships came back the engineer of one of the trains started it for the freight yards at Thirty-Third Street, and a crowd of about 2,000 was carried along, perched up on the roof of the cars"--The Phonoscope, October 1898, p. 15.
