    Late Nineteenth Century Union Pacific Railway Central Short Line Broadside. 8.5" x 21". The broadside advertises a multitude of travel options for Union Pacific's 4,000 miles of western routes into the rich mineral regions, stock ranges and agricultural valleys of California, Colorado, Oregon, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, and Nevada. Railroad broadsides of the 19th Century survived in small numbers, and are thus hard to find in any condition. The paper is brittle with some loss to the corners and chipping along the edges. Right margin has been trimmed about an inch. Paper toned with a damp stain at the top left corner, otherwise in good condition. A superb piece and graphic representation of the growing interest in the largely untapped potential of the American West during this period.
