Morning Zephyr Along the Mississippi (editor's title)

Morning Zephyr Along the Mississppi
The Burlington's Morning Zephyr with five Vista-Domes along the east side of the Mississipi River in Pierce County, Wisconsin. The river is on the left, the train angles from the lower right to the center left of the picture, and dramatic tree and brush covered bluffs fill the right half of the frame and taper to the left. This route, from Savanna, Illinois, to St. Paul, Minnesota, is renowned for its spectacular scenery, and although this is a publicity photograph, it is also a landscape.

Creator Description Ken Hedrich and Henry Blessing founded Hedrich Blessing in 1929. When Blessing left for Denver within the year, brother Ed Hedrich came in to manage the office. In 1931 brother Bill came on board as the first of hundreds of photographic assistants who would learn their craft at HB. Although most widely known for its architectural photography, Hedrich Blessing has been a commercial studio working with designers in related fields such as industrial, annual report, product and editorial photography.
