Railroad Museum to Debut Powerful New Exhibit Titled “Double Exposure” Opening September 14

Railroad Museum to Debut Powerful New Exhibit Titled “Double Exposure” Opening September 14

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to debut a powerful new exhibit titled “Double Exposure: Photography and the Transcontinental Railroad” on Saturday, September 14, 2013. The exhibition examines the emergence of photography and the ways in which the Central Pacific and Union Pacific Railroads used the new medium during the construction of America’s First Transcontinental Railroad.  Ultimately, the technology of photography not only helped to tell the story of the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad, but also helped to shape public perception and foster acceptance for this massive endeavor that encouraged westward travel and settlement.

While today’s advanced technologies make taking photographs and sharing images convenient, 19th century photography was a complex, lengthy and limited process.
