"Plate 27. Supply Trains" printed below image in capitalized letters.

This is a single page from "The Great West Illustrated in a Series of Photogrpahic Views Across the Continent" that contains an albumen print photograph.

The print shows a bunch of horse-driven wagons and their handlers in the foreground. In the background is a group of men standing beside an Union Pacific train.

"Supply trains would off-load supplies into wagons and the wagons would bring the materials to the construction crews grading parties farther west." Remarks per Glenn Willumson for the NEA Russell Grant, July 2013 - June 2015.
