Here is an old photo from our collection of Yellowstone memorabilia. There is no information on the back so everything we know is just speculation from the photo. It appears the ladies on the train's platform are on a tour of Yellowstone hosted by Rt. Reverend ? ... we think that may be him on the right. (No pun intended.) The big round sign on the back of the train is known as a "drumhead" ... trains usually had their name and logo in this spot. In this picture we can read, on the drumhead, Yellowstone at the bottom and then, curving around the top Rt Rev ???? Tour. We tried to do some research to see if we could determine who the Reverend was, and some info about his tours. We guess the date to be in the 1920s or 30s. Even Google couldn't help us on this one, so maybe one of you may know more about this vintage photograph. In any event, the ladies all appear to be having a great time.
