Title

Excursion Days, 1906

Description

The Ames & Campus Railway (The Dinkey) is traveling along an area bordered with trees. The front of the photograph indicates that it may have been taken during Excursion Days, October 5-6, 1906.
The Ames & College Railway, better known as the Dinkey, provided transportation between the City of Ames, Iowa and the Iowa Agricultural College (Iowa State University).� As a joint venture of Ames and the College, the Dinkey began operating on July 4, 1891. The Ames & College Railway was sold to the Fort Dodge, Des Moines and Southern Railroad in 1907. That year the Dinkey was replaced with an electric streetcar, known as the interurban.
