Traveling the Pennsylvania Railroad by Rau

This gallery represents a group of my favorite Rau photographs. All are unedited. The last, number 25 an incredible image is especially a favorite. In the 1890s Philadelphia preeminent photographer, William H. Rau, was commissioned to take more than 450 photographs along the routes of the Pennsylvania Railroad in order to promote travel on the railway to the general public. Hi-resolution reprints are available.
