Beauty, Brawn, Commerce & Travel: Photography of U.S. Railroads

Photography by the Wasatch Camera Club. Part of the All Aboard! Spike 150 exhibits at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center. #spike150

In May we celebrate the 150th year of the completing of the transcontinental railroad. That event not only transformed passenger travel and commerce, but also gave the nation a source of pride and optimism about its future. It lifted hundreds of thousands from poverty and imprinted generations with a can-do spirit that is still with us today.

With Promontory Summit within the state’s boundaries it is entirely fitting that the Utah Cultural Celebration Center present an exhibit of railroad photography titled, Beauty, Brawn, Commerce & Travel: Photography of U.S. Railroads. The exhibit will share approximately 30 railroad images taken by Utah photographers that capture a variety of dramatic moments of railroads past and present.
