The Union Pacific Company is proud of its railroad and saw the color photograph as the best way to show the world the scope and efficiency of its operation as well as the beauty of its territory served in the American West. It was prolific in its advertising and generous in its distribution of the Color calendars to on-line customers and stations. Likewise the calendars could be found far away and made the Armour yellow train of the Union Pacific familiar artwork adorning the offices of shippers from Philadelphia to Pensacola. Many of these treasured efforts are contained in this 128-page book.
