Here for your perusal is an original photograph of the William Crooks Locomotive, which was the first locomotive to operate in the U.S. state of Minnesota. It was built between 1861 and 1865, and it first provided service a year later in 1862 for the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, a rail line that eventually became part of the Great Northern Railway.
The photograph illustrates Wm. Crooks.
