Overland to California

California Historical Society

Overland to California draws from the California Historical Society's vast archival collections to consider the railroad's impact on the industry and culture of California. Featuring photographs, stereocards, historical objects and more this exhibition explores how rail access to California contributed not only to population growth and industrial development, but also to the construction of the state's enduring mythology as a tourist destination

This is what SF/Arts curator Betsy Crabtree has to say about Overland to California :

As we consider the future of the rail in California, we might also look at its history, which is the subject of a new exhibition at the CA Historical Society. “Overlands to California” presents a selection of artifacts—photos, stereocards, historical items and more—from its vast archival collection that invites viewers to ponder “the railroad's impact on the industry and culture of California.” $10.
