Locomotive Heading Through Sugar Land, 1940s

This photo comes from the Dierks family collection. I can't identify the boys, but at least one of them must be a member of the Dierks family. They lived on the south side of Highway 90A, roughly where Frost Bank and Windstream are located. You can see Sugar Land School in the background. Of course, you can't miss the steam locomotive headed east toward Houston. I can't remember ever seeing steam locomotives come through town - this photo was probably taken during WWII. (The boy wearing the cap is giving us his best Hunz Hall impression.)
