This rich design was part of a group of posters commissioned by the Santa Fe Railway to promote travel to the west. The Santa Fe Railway was founded in 1859. They became the second transcontinental railway to exist and expanded further with north-south routes in California. The company was featured in a 1945 song, “On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe” sung by Judy Garland for the film The Harvey Girls. In 1996, the railway merged with the Burlington Northern Railway to form the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway. In this night scene we view the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The perspective of the image conveys a sense of a railway and effectively conveys some of the beauty of the area. Regrettably, we do not know the name of the artist for this poster.
