Jerry Precariously

Jerry Precariously
A that could lead to trouble / danger photo for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

Handwritten note on the back of this photo: "Eng. No. 5. Dan rebuilt. Jerry in front."

Stamped on the back: "This is a genuine Border Fox Tone Picture, made by Fox Company, San Antonio, Texas,...1927" ("Fox Co." also appears on the front in the lower right- and upper left-hand corners of the decorative border).

Jerry precariously perches at the front of steam engine no. 5 as Dan (or someone else?) stands next to the cab at the back of the locomotive (mouse over the image above for a close-up view of the engine).

Judging by the smoke coming out of the smokestack, the engine is building up a head of steam, and it even appears that the train whistle is blowing, since steam is escaping from it.

I hope that Jerry didn't lose his balance at the sound of the whistle or that his precarious pose on the locomotive didn't lead to any other trouble for him.
