Picture 2-1.
In the mid-1800s, horsecar no. 6 starts out on the two-mile trip from the old Champaign County courthouse in Urbana to the Illinois Central depot, the Doane House, in Champaign.  Notice the track: next to the courthouse sidewalk here at the end of the line, it turned into the center of Main Street and proceeded through downtown Urbana.  The car is apparently a double-end car pulled by two horses and carrying a two-man crew of driver and conductor.  Our view is looking south.  This is the only known picture of a Champaign-Urbana horsecar.  Brink, McDonough, History of Champaign County.
