Interesting old pictures that document the building of the Union Pacific rail line to Promontory Point, where the line met the Central Pacific line coming from California. The photos were taken by A.J. Russell, a contemporary of Mathew Brady. The text description was short. Overall, the pictures and text are nicely done.
