In this car, known as the California Special, I toured the Southwest in 1902 with a display of pictures for the Detroit Publishing Company.
-- William Henry Jackson, "Time Exposure"
"Detroit Photographic Co. Special." An assistant to William Henry Jackson seated in a Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad car. I've been reading WHJ's autobiography, "Time Exposure," which he began in his tenth decade and completed in 1940, two years before his death at age 99. Highly recommended by Shorpy's Book Club. 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative.
