Railroads and the national parks

Tourists Waiting for Old Faithful

Here is a link to an online MA thesis done by Joshua Scott Johns at the University of Virginia: "All Aboard: The Role of the Railroads in Protecting, Promoting, and Selling Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks."

This web exhibit is quite good, illustrated, and touches on many of the themes raised in class this morning. Great topic!
