The Color Photography of John B. Hungerford and Harold F. Stewart by Joe Dale Morris and Rod Crossley.
Travel the Golden Empire through the cameras of John B. Hungerford and Harold F. Stewart in more than 495 mostly never-before-published photographs in color.
Mr. Hungerford, an author and printing company owner, traveled California and the west from one end to the other focusing on the action of the Southern Pacific Railroad's main lines, branch lines, narrow gauge, Nacozari Branch and interchange railroads.
Harold Stewart, a Motorman with the Pacific Electric and later a Locomotive Engineer with the Southern Pacific, traveled throughout the west photographing the SP and other railroad companies. You'll see first hand the photographs as observed through the extraordinary cameras of Misters Hungerford and Stewart.
Considering the era, 98 percent of the book is of steam locomotives at work. Includes some nice photographs of the Magma Arizona, Pickering Lumber and Ferrocarril de Nacozari.
