LIVE AUCTION LOTS
LOT 76. BUDDIES
ESTIMATE: $650 – 750.
Lot 79: EBENEZER ELIJZH HENRY, MISSOURI, KANSAS & TEXAS W. RAILROAD CO.
The top photograph features two men standing on the railroad tracks. “E.E. Henry” appears in the water by the boat. The bottom photograph shows a train. The engine is emblazoned with “M.K. & T. R. W. Co.” We presume the “W” stands for west. There are men in front of the train, on top of the train and in the doorways of the train. We can see a busy town to the left. Wikipedia offers a good history of the “M.K & T.” Railroad as it came to be known, and eventually shortened to “Katy.”
ESTIMATE: $400 - 500.
Lot 82: ROMANTIC SEA CAPTAIN, ENGLAND
ESTIMATE: $4000 – 5000.
