This exhibit contains a sample of nearly 25,000 railroad images by photographers such as William H. Jackson, L. C. McClure, George Beam, Otto Perry, and Robert W. Richardson that are part of the online photo collection.

In addition to the online photos, there are thousands of railroad-specific photographs and other materials held at the Western History / Genealogy Department, on Level Five of the Denver Public Library. Here's more about the Railroad Collection.

On each page in this exhibit, the linked call number will take you to detailed information about the photograph, or an enlargement if you click on the image - both in new windows.
