    Imperial Size Photograph "Mt. Shasta" From C. P. R. R. ca 1880. The 1887 completion of the Central Pacific Railroad, built along the line of the Siskiyou Trail, brought a dramatic increase in tourism, lumbering, and population into Mount Shasta. This early development continued to focus on tourism and lumbering. The area where the town later grew up was known first as Strawberry Valley, and then as Berryvale. With the arrival of the railroad, the town was given the name Sisson, California, after prominent land owner Justin Sisson. The name was changed to Mount Shasta 1924.

    large size albumen print of Mount Shasta, photographed from a Central Pacific Railroad car. Assuming this is probably Strawberry Valley, has a few buildings with signage. "Livery-Feed Stable, Saddle-Hoses, Hay-Grain sale, Teams, Saddles, Horses". Gilded under photograph "Mt. Shasta from C. P. R. R." Measures approximately 14" x 11".

    Condition: Fine-very fine, water spots, top of mount, right and bottom
