Mark Twain on railroad in Crookston

Black and white photograph of Mark Twain on railroad in Crookston, 1895.


Mark Twain’s early morning train out of Crookston on July 30, 1895, was delayed by forty-five minutes, leaving him annoyed. He used that extra time to board a baggage truck and have his manager, J. B. Pond, push him up and down the platform.
