This is a Civil War era carte de visite showing a man with a locomotive at his side.
I don't know if the locomotive is a model or a toy, but it looks to be very well detailed (more so than I would expect for a toy).
The image came in an album with other 1860s era images. Most carry Mass. backmarks, but this particular image is not photographer marked.
