Transferred from the Union Lumber Company Records (BANC MSS 68/21 c). The album was received with records donated by Russell Johnson in 1991 that supplement a previous collection received in 1967 from the Company

Scope and Content

The California Scenic Line album features 56 views from the route of the California Western Railroad & Navigation Company line. The line runs from the coastal town of Fort Bragg through the redwood forests of Mendocino County to Willits, California. The leather-bound promotional album issued by the railroad company is undated, but appears to be from the early 1900s. The album includes many views of the Noyo River Tavern, a new resort on the railroad line. Also included are views of the Noyo River that emphasize the trout fishing in the river. Additional views of redwoods and other scenery and views of the Fort Bragg town and coast complete the album. The album includes handwritten captions that are reproduced in the container listing.
