Details

Part of James J. Hill's Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway, completed in 1908 from Spokane to Portland, this view shows the two-track trestle entering the town of Lyle from the east. As can be seen in detail view 2, the railroad passes to the north of the existing town, and a new town was platted to the north in 1909.

The town of Lyle shown in detail view 1 became known as "downtown". This photo is recreated from the original glass negative taken by Wills W. Vail, a railroad employee. It is dated 1-3-1906 on its paper sleeve.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
