The Louisville & Nashville Railroad, 1850-1963

Sampul Depan
University Press of Kentucky, 1964 - 402 halaman
"A history of the L & N Railroad which had its beginning in 1850: The author chronicles the birth and growing pains of this enterprise which started by building a few miles of track near Louisville, KY, and steadily extended its lines until they stretched more than 5000 miles through thirteen states. The story involves not only the growth of a railroad but also its contribution to the building of a "new South" by tapping natural resources and nurturing industry as it marched from the Ohio River to the Gulf of Mexico. Although the heart of the account is the building of the L & N, Mr. Herr has lightened his account with sidelights and anecdotes and his diligent search of the company archives and many other sources produced more than 300 illustrations. Some of the pictures are representative of the earliest use of photography. They are supplemented by drawings typical of the period when hand-drawn art was the rule and camera illustrations were rare."--page [4] of dust jacket.
