In the 1940s, the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy railroad began giving its company archives to the Newberry Library. Hidden in these archives were thousands of negatives created for a book project to celebrate the company's centenary in the 1950s. Ginger Frere, Reference Librarian at the Newberry Library, helped to digitize and make available online a representative sample of these photographs. These photographs provide an intimate view of the operations of the extensive CB&Q railroad and how it shaped daily life in the towns in passed through and connected.

Photographs and additional materials from the Newberry's CB&Q collection will be on display in a Spotlight Exhibit from August 10 to October 16, 2010. For more information, please visit http://www.newberry.org/exhibits/gran...
