WESTERN & ATLANTIC RAILROAD / W. & A. R. R. "The Famous 'War Engine 'General' at the Fair" lent to the Century of Progress Exposition (1933-4) by Then Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway, 2 Dixie Line logos on front & back; unused postcard, minor corner rounding. Surprisingly hard to find. Our Internet search found it in the holdings of 3 museums--Lake County Discovery Museum, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign & Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive Archive)--plus one recorded sale as part of a large lot, and only 1 other listing (which was erroneous)! The text on front supplies interesting details about its capture at Big Shanty & the ensuing lengthy chase. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. cr(w)e
WESTERN & ATLANTIC RAILROAD / W. & A. R. R. Uncaptioned sepia-tone Azo (triangles all up) real photo postcard showing the Andrews Raiders Monument in the National Cemetery at Chattanooga Tennessee, 4 well-dressed men & an auto near the surrounding graves; good edges. Obviously one-of-a-kind: no caption, no photographer or publisher attribution. We like this image of the monument better than most printed cards of it we have seen. By taking it from the back instead of the front, the photographer showed more of the surrounding graves & captured the fact that some people simply stopped to regard it respectfully. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. r(w)t(c)cc
