On the occasion of our first snow of the season...

How wonderfully amazing to have this photograph of Waltham's iconographic "Engine 1" out and about on a snow day in Waltham goodness knows how many winters ago. 

Notice the steam rising out of the boiler on the back of the engine, and the misty breath of one of the lead horses' exhaling.

Waltham's Engine 1 was built in 1871 by Amoskeag Locomotive Works in Manchester, New Hampshire and is on permanent exhibit at our Museum - a gift of the W.H. Nichols Company. 

We're honored that Engine 1 is the featured photograph on Amoskeag Locomotive Works' Wikipedia page
