An image scanned from a black and white photograph. Handwritten text reads, "Harry Steeves (?) on jitney."
The vehicle in the background has the body of a truck, or station wagon, that has been mounted on railroad wheels to run along the tracks. The image has been saved near notes on the "K.I. Jitney - as mentioned in Katahdin Iron Works Revisted, compiled by William Sawtelle, Milo Printing Company, 1983, DownEast article by Isabel Currier - part of summary, p. 12... Mrs. Green had to turn to the woods for a livelihood...She had the bright idea of buying a station wagon and having it flanged with wheels to run on the eleven miles of tracks between Brownville Junction and K.I."
