Union Pacific locomotive
What we know about this photo: This image from the James Floyd collection at the Klamath County Museum shows a group posing in front of a Union Pacific "streamlined" train that visited Klamath Falls on March 22, 1934. According to a report in the Klamath News, more than 12,000 people toured the "canary colored aluminum tube on wheels" while it was on an overnight stop in Klamath Falls. Union Pacific dignitaries who were on the train - and may be in this photo - included railroad Vice President F.W. Robinson, and J.W. Haugh, assistant to railroad president W. Averill Harriman. A reception event was organized by the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce, whose representatives may also be in this photo. This event took place at a point when the local newspapers were not yet publishing locally produced photos.

What we don't know: Who are the four people posing for this photo?
