Medium shot of Metro Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Train driving through downtown Waukesha on 23 July 1925. The photograph was taken looking northwest at Five Points. The train is going west on Main Street. The Clarke block at 316 West Main Street is behind the engine of the train. Hannon Paints and Wallpaper at 312 West Broadway Street is in the background behind the passenger car. People can be seen in second-story windows looking out at the train. The cobblestone street can be clearly seen in foreground.
Notes: There was a cover article in the 23 July 1925 Waukesha Freeman about the promotional visit by the trackless MGM train.
