1890 Union Pacific Railroad Ledger Interesting Old West Content
A loosely bound volume from the Union-Pacific Railroad covering payments and accident reports from the month of June in the year 1890. Interesting content as the railroad was paying out some questionable sums for killed livestock. For instance a rancher claims UPR Engine hit and killed his six-month old steer calf on Fed 20th 1890. The railroad agreed to pay $4.00 to the Rancher for the calf.In another incident a prized Cow was killed by an unknown engine and the rancher settled for $20.00 dollars after asking $25.00.
Operating a railroad system during this time was anything but easy according to just one month of activity in June of 1890.
Condition Report: Bound at one time but basically sections have become detached. Over-all in good condition. 8 1/2 x 11 inches.
