2217 -- May 9, 2012

Doctor Peter Henri Van Der Weyde wrote the series of articles which gave this blog its name. Among his many accomplishments was taking some of the first Daguerreotypes in the United States. PH's grandson, William Manley Van der Weyde, took this photo of locomotive 2217 of an unknown railroad.  (Source: George Eastman House. Accession Number: 1974:0056:1243).
