Train Wreck

Train Wreck 1This week’s post features two photographs of a train wreck.  My father, Joseph Motter, believes that the wreck occurred in Ada, Ohio.

The second photograph seems to indicate that the cars were from the Pennsylvania Line Railroad.  Based on the clothing styles, I am guessing these photoTrain Wreck 2graphs were taken in the late 19th or early 20th century.  If you happen to know when and where this train wreck occurred, please let me know.

    I suspect that the train wreck images refer to an accident reported in the Jan. 14, 1902 Ada Record on p. 3

    Would it be possible to obtain higher resolution copies?
