Union Pacific Railroad publicity photo showing a well-dressed female passenger boarding the Los Angeles Limited in Chicago, circa 1905, assisted by an African American porter. The train began operations on December 15th of that year, running via the Chicago & North Western, Union Pacific, and San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroads. Many long distance passenger trains were marketed to affluent travelers, and the Los Angeles Limited was described as "a palatial train for particular people." The photo appears on p. 175 of Arthur Dubin's book, "Some Classic Trains" by Arthur Dubin (Kalmbach 1964). More recently, it was used in the documentary "Rising From the Rails: The Story of the Pullman Porter" (AMS Productions, 2006).
