Old Tucson ~

Here are some additional images from the celebration of Union Pacific's mighty #844 steam locomotive making its downtown Tucson stop on Saturday. Top photo is a fine example of period clothing and a meticulously restored Elwell Parker Electric Company's railroad baggage tug (1909). It's top speed was 20MPH. Another photo of nice period costumes & the bottom photo is a band of cheerful Union soldiers serenading the crowd! Fun ~
