A terrific railroad map that is most notable in its depiction of the Golden Spike area in Utah: the entire track is shown completed except for 50 miles between Weber Canyon and Fort Bridger! As far as we know this is the only railroad map with this unique depiction. It was published just days before the completion of this historic railway. Scores of railroads are located throughout the country, including complete and projected lines; the Northern & Southern Pacific Trunk lines are shown in bold lines. Published by the American Photo-Lithographic Company using a printing technique called "Osborne's Process."
