In May we celebrate the 150th year of the completion 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 wih a can-so 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 titiled: 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. Now in its 25th year, the Wasatch Camera Club is co-producing the exhibit with the UCCC.
