On the plaque is the following text, all in uppercase letters: “Railroad employees’ national safety contest / 1928 / Group C winner / Lowest total [text not legible] / Oregon-Washington Railroad & Navigation Company / Awarded by the National Safety Council.” A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 9 of the Oregon Journal on Wednesday, June 5, 1929, under the headline “Safety First Dividend.” The photograph had the following caption: “Care and alertness in railway operations pays. Here is J. P. O’Brien, general manager of the O-W.R. & N., holding plaque awarded to line by National Safety Council for best and lowest accident credit in list of 22 American railways of its class.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “O-W.R.R.&N. Wins Award for ‘Safety.’” See related image No. 371N1908. Image note: The name “O’Brien” is written on the negative and is visible on the left side of the photograph.
