WWII B-29 airplane commander W. R. Heath, Jr. spent his pre-war years traveling the country with his camera in hand. As a Tulsa, Oklahoma resident during the Great Depression, Heath used his precious film on some of the Dust Bowl's most unique railroading sights, and he also lensed trains in places like Columbus and Memphis. This unique book presents Heath's entire catalog of 50 black and white railroad images from a bygone era, printed in stunning quality and preserved for generations to come.
