From Yosemite Valley to the California Missions along the coast, this collection of 45 large-scale photographs from Southern Pacific Railroad's "Route of a Thousand Wonders" explores the development of photography, the boom in statewide tourism, and the romanticism of the West. Using Southern Pacific artifacts such as depot benches, brochures, and china from the trains' dining cars, visitors can reimagine early railroad travel.
