Railroad Construction at Harveyville, Kansas - c.1880

The Manhattan, Burlingame & Alma Railway was completed as far north as Alma and the first trains began to run on the line on July 5, 1880. This photo shows men driving the last spike at the Harveyville station, and has an attached caption that misidentifies the date as 1898.
