Summary
A horse-drawn streetcar on J Street between 27th and 28th Streets passes the decaying Sutter's Fort, ca. 1888. Sacramento's oldest surviving structure, the fort was the center of activity in the formative years and survived the floods and fires that plagued the community. Sutter had the sense to heed advice and build on the high ground removed from the unpredictable rivers that occasionally overflowed their banks and submerged all they passed over. The quality of the photo must be the cameraman's error - those horses don't look like they're going fast enough to raise dust let alone blur an image!
