Chicago & Alton R.R. 1880s


During the 1890s, the Chicago and Alton Rail Road carried two million passengers a year – in style. The “iron horses” that traveled between Illinois and Missouri had the first Pullman sleepers and there was dining on board. This Bill of Fare advertising lunch includes quotes from Shakespeare, Shelly, Swift and Longfellow.
