Macpherson Trestle

Among the things the Mount Lowe incline was known for was Macpherson Trestle; so named for design engineer David Joseph Macpherson. Formally educated at Cornell University and formerly employed by the Santa Fe Railway, Macpherson took his challenges to heart and came up with some brilliant solutions to less than suitable building conditions. Photographer unknown, undated, 4.75″ by 6.75″.
