Description

"Mar. 1912. Crowds looking at Elk passing on way to Joseph. Elgin, in Union County, was the last stop before the train entered Wallowa County. The sign at the depot tells travellers it is 62.9 miles to Joseph. There was snow on the ground when the people here bundled up against the cold breeze and joined the throng at the railroad tracks."
