"c.1914 (NOT 1930) map of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad and Western Pacific Railroad, pieced together from the two maps at 1. Does not show up on 2, thus has passed into the public domain."

License: "This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired."

The lower edge shows "6-12'14 Poole Bros. Chicago 5408", indicating that indeed the map is from 1914.

  • Library of Congress. Copyright Office, "Catalog of Copyright Entries. Part 1. B Group 2. Pamphlets, Etc. New Series," p 105, 1912. "Map of the Denver and Rio Grande system and the Western Pacific railway and connections Size 22 by 27i inches 2501 July 7 1911 2 c Jan 15 1912 F 22219 FA Wadleigh Denver" Note that the title of the copyright registration is the same as the title in this image.
  • The map does not show the Deep Creek Railroad, located on the Nevada/Utah border running south from Wendover. The Deep Creek Railroad was owned by the Western Pacific. Deep Creek was in operation from 1917 until 1939. If this map was from 1930, it would likely have shown the Deep Creek.
