Description A Shipment of Model T Fords. This was the scene in March, 1914, at the Sierra Railway Depot, Sonora, California. Large box cars could transport seven chassis in one half of the car; the bodies in the other half with fenders and splash aprons hanging on the walls. The wheels and bodies were installed on-the-spot and the cars driven under their own power to the Sonora Garage at the Southwest corner of Washington & Stockton Streets. Chas. Goelz was the proprietor of this thriving business. County Hospital can be seen behind rail cars.
