Southern Pacific Railroad 2024 Wall Calendar

$15.95

Southern Pacific Railroad began with a simple idea: to connect San Francisco and San Diego, California, by rail. A century later, Southern Pacific had become one of the largest railroads in America, with lines that stretched from coast to coast (connecting to New York via Morgan Line steamships) and from the south to the northwest. In 1959, SP moved more ton-miles of freight than any other U.S. railroad. Engines featured here reach back to the era of SP steam, and forward to the diesels of the 1970s.

First Light at Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, 1,000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

$16.95

Cadillac Mountain is the centerpiece of Mount Desert Island in Maine and the heart of Acadia National Park. At 1,530 feet above sea level, Cadillac Mountain is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard and offers dramatic panoramas in every direction. Mount Desert Island is notable as the second largest island on America’s eastern seaboard (Long Island, New York is larger) and as the home of Acadia National Park. The commercial center of the island is the town of Bar Harbor on Frenchman’s Bay.

To make the image featured in the First Light jigsaw puzzle, photographer Paul Rezendes positioned his camera at the top of Cadillac Mountain and directed the lens toward the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman’s Bay and located just to the east of Bar Harbor. The dramatic sweep of the picture ranges from the granite stone of the mountain and on to the fog-bound islands in the bay below. The beautiful pink color of the stone is enhanced by the light of the sun rising beyond the Atlantic Ocean behind the photographer.
