We stand on the shoulders of the great men and women who have gone before. Their legacy is a gift that lights our way forward.

The first in our Legacies series of videos features the work of William Henry Jackson who lived from 1843 to 1942 and was one of the first photographers to extensively record the early days of railroading. For a little more background information, see here.


If you haven’t visited our YouTube channel, check it out. We are just getting started but plan to have more video content in the coming months. If you enjoy seeing this type of work, let us know by subscribing to our channel.

  1. Edd, this is fantastic! Photographs are so interesting, especially those featuring some of the engineering that was done (by hand!) that made railroading in the west possible. The guitar accompaniment is perfect; is that you playing or can you tell me who the performer is? Thanks for this, can’t wait for the next chapter of Legacies.

    1. Thanks, Bob. No, that is not me playing–wish I could. The music, in order is:
      Lazy River Rag – Dan Lebowitz
      Fresh Fallen Snow – Chris Haugen
      Campfire Song – Chris Haugen
