A grand promotional map of the state with a sub-title inside the map of “Map of the Land Grant of the Union Pacific Railroad in Nebraska 4,250,000 Acres”. And with a hand colored swath through the heart of the state depicting the land grant, the impact and importance of the Union Pacific is clear, from Omaha through central Nebraska, stopping in at Julesburg (Colorado), and then continuing through the panhandle to Pine Bluffs, the UP held a prime chunk of western land. Centered on the Platte River throughout most of its track, few towns stray too far from it or its immediate tributaries.
A fine map of the state in very good condition. Has been professionally backed with tissue, some minor points of loss, but not effecting printed matter. Image size is 15.5 x 26.5, hand color
