BETHLEHEM DAILY TIMES, Pennsylvania, May 11, 1869
* Transcontinental Railroad completed... very historic!
The front page has a report beginning: "The junction of the Union with the Central Pacific Railroad, at Promontory Point, Utah, was effected yesterday, and there is now railroad communication across the continent. The event was celebrated by jubilant demonstrations in various cities of the Union..." with a bit more (see).
Four pages, very nice, clean condition.
