It was Dec. 29, 1876, and the bustling holiday season was in full swing in the lively lakefront city of Ashtabula, Ohio.

A major Great Lakes shipping port, Ashtabula also boasted a number of rail lines, including Cornelius Vanderbilts Lake Shore & Michigan Southern, which ran its Pacific Express all the way to Oakland, California.
