Looking down at the Port Costa station with the ferry at the landing. A locomotive pulls a train from the ferry. Peeking out from the behind the wooden tower behind the first car of the train is the back of the wagon for Watkins' Yosemite Gallery. This also gives an indication of Watkins' working procedure. He carried the tripod, mammoth camera, stereo camera and other needs up to this elevation, and then moved to a position at an oblique angle to make the next view. This is a very rare image.
