Union Pacific -- Cattle Country

From our old postcard collection here is a card published by the Union Pacific Railroad, number 9 of a series featuring each state served by the railroad. This card features Montana, and, although uncertain, we think it was published in the 1940s. We do not know the name of the artist or the total number of cards in the series.


Cowboy, Cattle, Train, and Mountains

No. 9 in a series featuring states served by the railroad.


Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

    Since this post card is very old I am sure Montana has changed a lot.

  7. I like the image - but then I like cows. That's probably why. The colors are still very vibrant.

  8. Another nice scene of cowboy life. I see the train at the back :-)

    So sad that the Hawks could not hold on to their victory. It looks like it was really gonna happen.

  11. I like the bright colors mentioned by other commenters as well. Montana is one of the few states west of the Mississippi that I've never had the opportunity to visit. If it's still as awesome as it was advertized to be in the 1940s, maybe I should put it on my list!
