About This Image

Modernistic and haunting, this image of an empty railroad car gives a feeling of timelessness. The car was manufactured by the J.G. Brill Company, which is identified in a small chalkboard sign at the bottom middle of the image. Mounted on silk. J. G. Brill and Company manufactured streetcars and buses in the United States. The company was founded by John George Brill in 1868 as a horsecar manufacturing firm in Philadelphia and was taken over by the American Car and Foundry Company in 1926. Brill manufactured over 45,000 trolleys, buses and railroad cars. At its height, it was the largest manufacturer of streetcars and interurbans in the United States.
