Lightly rubbed. 1969 Large Hardcover. The Union Pacific, the continent-shrinking streak of gleaming iron, speculative dollars, and human sweat and ingenuity that bound together the nation that was to lead the world into the twentieth century. The men who built the U.P. knew they were making history, and they had the foresight and insight to document their work in the imperishable images of an outstanding practitioner of the nascent art of photography - A. J. Russell, who stood next to the great Matthew Brady as a keen interpreter of great events.
