Pennsylvania #9 locomotive photograph
Description: Pennsylvania #9, 4-4-2 steam locomotive, most likely at the Upper Sandusky depot. Locomotives are classified by wheel arrangement. 4-4-2 represents a configuration of four leading wheels on two axles, and is commonly known as the Atlantic or Milwaukee type. The Pennsylvania Railroad was founded in 1846 and went on to become one of the largest railroads in US history. Photograph by Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's department store, and later as a travelling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). He was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
