is a wonderful Railroad Calendar with many great lithographs done by Howard Fogg of Boulder Colorado, nationally famed illustrator or railroad subjects. This is a very large calendar with huge illustrations. The calendar measures 24" long and 19" wide. The illustrations are 12" by 17" wide. Other than it being rolled up, it is in amazing condition. T are no bends or other major damage. Only thing I seen was on one of the bottom pages of the calendar are 3 tiny tears that measure less than 1/8 of an inch. You can't even see them."This is a special calendar as it marks the new and wonderful year of 1969 which is the centennial of the Golden Spike ceremony at Promontory, Utah, which marked the completion of Americas first transcontinental railroad. Many said it would never be accomplished. News of its completion, flashed by telegraph, aroused interest in the globe. Because of this centennial they have departed from the usual in this year's calendar, and have commissioned a collection of original oil paintings telling the story of the Union Pacific and the people it serves" This is an amazing calendar and condition couldn't be much better. Great illustrations tell the story of the Union Pacific Railroad and on back page gives a brief history and title of each illustration in the calendar. At the end is the 1970 calendar with all the months on one page. I did not get to put all the photos of the lithos in the picture area. T are more. Great addition to any railroad collection.
