Mayne's Grocery, 232 S. Jefferson St., Huntington
On December 12, 1912, a steam locomotive on the Chicago, Bluffton &
Cincinnati Railroad tracks on Riverside Drive rolled backwards, crossing
Jefferson Street and falling into the basement of Mayne's Grocery store.
It is thought vandals released the engine's brakes.

This is the old Schacht's building on West Park Drive
I am told that the sign for this company, a dealer of imported horses, actually faced
the railroad behind the building.  Many publications flipped the negative when
printing a photo of this building because they thought the signed faced the street.
