Object Name Print, Photographic
Description (#331)

Work car (speeder) in Silverton with Bernice Johnson and Greta Johnson (not related) on seat. Driver unknown. "Carp" Weschedel is on the far right. Behind is a house noted as collapsed in 1914 and rebuilt, and that the photo was taken from Roy Holley's hotel.

That would be hard, as the photographer was standing next to the tracks. There were a number of company and private speeders on the tracks from Silverton to Granite Falls, as no road was in existence and few trains/gas cars made trips. - per David Cameron, 2005
