Illustration of steam locomotive frightening people and horses at the intersection of North Broad Street and Callowhill. Signalmen with flags attempt to control the chaos. The locomotive is on the Callowhill tracks of the Philadelphia & Reading Railroad. Shows the Lawrence Hotel bedecked with flags, probably in celebration of the Centennial Exposition. A horsecar is shown emerging from the far side of the hotel. The Baldwin locomotive works were located nearby from 1835 to 1928.
