Fine chromolithographic view of Yellowstone National Park and Vicinity, published as a promotional brochure for the Northern Pacific Railroad.
The view is shown in the style of a caricature of the region's topography. The line of the Northern Pacific Railroad appears at the top of the view, from Springdale to Bozeman, noting distances to Portland from Bozeman and St. Paul from Springfield.
At Springfield, a spur of the main line extends southward through Brissin, Chicory, Emigrant, Daileys, Sphinx and finally its terminus in Cinnabar, near the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel.
In white, the roads servicing the southern part of Yellowstone are shown winding down toward Yellowstone Lake, the Lake Hotel and Upper Geyser Basin. Dozens of landmarks are noted and dozens more mountains and lakes are identified, making for a remarkable visual image.
A striking large image.
