Photograph of Mount Lowe railway car on circular bridge, showing car from the side, 1895. In the background at center, a steep mountain hillside covered in vegetation is visible. Wrapping around the center of the mountain, a small circular track can be seen. Several large poles are visible alongside the track supporting an array of wires. At left, at least four trestles can be seen supporting the bridge from the large drop below. Above the trestles, a small railway moves along the track. A small metallic arm extends from the top of the car and attaches to one of the wires hanging above. The railway was the creation of Thaddeus S.C. Lowe, a Civil War balloonist.
