Mr. Charles Harvey with the test car
Mr. Charles T. Harvey demonstrating the cable propulsion method on the elevated railway. The cable return is under the sidewalk rather than directly under the track as it would be later. The type of column used here would have had to be replaced or modified to make space for a return under the track, and regular cable service never ran on this segment of the line.
