    Photograph of Southern Pacific Engine No. 1150 at the Sparks, Nevada Depot, Circa 1900. Cabinet card, 4.25" x 4", mounted on studio card to an overall size of 6.5" x 5.5". Unknown studio. A beautiful image of Southern Pacific engine 1150 making a stop at the Sparks, Nevada depot. On the verso of the studio card in pencil is written "George Abbott/ Engineer at Sparks/ Abbott Hotel Also". The image also depicts members of the engine's crew - an long-spouted oil can appears between two rather dirty crew members, and cleaner members of the local citizenry are gathered about. There is an area of slight overexposure in the central portion of the image and it appears that the photograph was taken on an overcast day, otherwise the details are sharp and the photograph is in excellent condition.
