Sugar Land Express, 1909

(UPDATE) I got a note from Bettye Anhaiser recently giving some information on the girls in this picture. Here's what she said, "
The Sugar Land Express picture I have seen, and two of the girls are Phelps sisters, Alice and Roma. I knew them in DAR, and they were sweet as can be."

This photo shows four girls and a dog sitting in a cart near the narrow-gauge railway that served the cane fields west of Sugar Land. Life must have moved pretty slow back then if this is an express mode of transportation.

This photo comes from the Fort Bend Museum Collection.
